About Me

Hi, my name is Jean Millar, and this is my third year at Stargate!  I am a proud graduate of Metropolitan State College where I received a degree in Elementary Education and minor in Fine Arts.   This will be my 32nd  year of teaching.

I have been happily married for the last 34 years to Dean.  We have two children.  Kayla, a graphic design artist, and Ashley a veterinarian technician.  We also have Benjamin, a golden retriever, who is three years old.  

                     
                                         

In my free time I volunteer at the Museum of Nature and Science, read, and scrapbook.  

I am a huge Rockies fan and love going to Spring Training on Spring Break.  I also love the Broncos!!!

                                                              

I feel so blessed to be a part of the Stargate community, and am excited to be teaching here.
