Dear Parents, Families, and our Parish Community,
I want to warmly welcome Dr. Danielle Miller, Ed.D. to the St. Francis of Assisi Parish Community. Dr. Danielle has joined us as the first staff member of our St. Anthony of Padua School at SFA as Principal, and will administrate and oversee the development of the educational and faith based curricula and the school. Danielle is a native Las Vegan who attended both St. Viator School and Bishop Gorman HS. She has over 28 years of experience as both a teacher and an administrator. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Recreational and Leisure Studies from the University of California, Long Beach and earned both a Masters of Education in Instructional and Curricular Studies and a doctoral degree in Educational Administration from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
She has been a principal at the elementary, middle and high school levels, as well as an Assistant Chief of Student Achievement and Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction for the 5th largest school district. She has served as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; University of Phoenix; and Sierra Nevada College education preparation courses for both teachers and administrators. She served on numerous committees including The APPLE Partnership Executive Board and Channel 10 Keeping Kids Fit. Danielle received a Key to the City of Henderson for her dedication to the education of students.
God is now calling her to continue her vocation in Education through our catholic school. She feels blessed to administrate, create, and foster a faith-filled Catholic parochial school where our children will thrive. Danielle is excited to be part of the St. Francis of Assisi Parish Community and to work alongside Fr. John as we move forward with the next phase of construction - the St. Anthony of Padua School at SFA. Please join me in warmly welcoming Dr. Danielle Miller to St. Francis of Assisi.
Ad multos annos and blessings,
Fr. John Assalone
