A Passion for Teaching and Teachers

November 19, 2011—Decades after she lost her first-grade teacher to a car accident, Sue Corbin Rieg ’81 found a way to honor him: She started the Leon Miller Scholarship fund. The Professional Studies in Education professor credits her memories of Miller as the inspiration for her pursuit of a teaching career. Her goal is to be able to provide scholarships to students who share her passion for teaching and aspire to teach others.

“I learned that you don’t have to be wealthy to start something like this. You just have to have the passion, you have to have the drive, and you have to have great friends and family members.”
