Our district offers tremendous opportunities for our students, and it is also an extremely rewarding place to work.”

In 2008, the district named Miller the facilitator of special programs for Darlington County Adult Education. There he served various roles, including GED instructor for the Under 18 Program, a Computer Skills instructor and the coordinator for the South Carolina Virtual School Program.
In 2012, the Darlington County Board of Education named Miller the director of Darlington-Lee Adult Education. Since, he has served as an adjunct professor at the College of Charleston and the district’s Interim Pupil Personnel Supervisor.
