New Assistant Principal Appointed For Malibu High School (For Malibu Middle School):

The SMMUSD Board of Education approved the appointment of Patrick Miller as the new assistant principal of Malibu High School working with the middle school program at its special meeting on Monday.

Miller has been the assistant principal of A.E. Wright Middle School in Calabasas since 2013 and was previously a Spanish teacher for Malibu High School grades 6-12 from 2007-2013. In Malibu, he was the world languages department chair, an administrative intern, school site council member, literacy team leader and district instructional leadership team member.

During the past two years as an assistant principal in the Las Virgenes Unified School District, Miller led professional development for district world language teachers, oversaw numerous facilities upgrades, helped implement a new district technology plan, revised safety and emergency plans and was the site test coordinator for the implementation of new California Standards testing and assessment.

Miller began his teaching career teaching Spanish in the Newberg School District and Dayton School District in 2006, prior to joining the Malibu staff in 2007.

Miller earned his Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Linfield College in Oregon and his Master of Arts in educational administration from Cal State University, Northridge. He has a diploma in Hispanic studies from the University of Granada, Spain.

“What brings me back to Malibu High are my connections to the school and to the “kids” and my firm belief that Malibu High’s potential is incredible,” Miller said. “There are many exciting and positive things going on in regards to academics, athletics, extra and co-curriculars at Malibu High School and I look forward to working alongside of and supporting the staff to continue to create the best learning environment possible.”

Miller was awarded the “Staff Star Award” from the Malibu High Faculty Advisory Committee in 2013 and outstanding teacher recognition from Malibu Middle School, the same year. He received an Honorary Service Award from Malibu High School PTSA in 2012. He has also previously coached basketball and golf at Malibu High School.

Miller’s appointment is effective July 1, 2015.
