Anna Mills: Innovation Coordinator- Soaring Heights

I am delighted to be a part of the Soaring Heights PK-8 community. I feel fortunate to be at a school that applies forward-thinking educational theories into their everyday practice such as neuroscience, blended learning, movement, and design thinking. As the Innovation Coordinator, I am passionate about creating, developing and supporting our innovation classes. I truly have the best job in the world because I get to work with teachers and students to create authentic learning opportunities.

I grew up in Longmont and love being able to make an educational impact in my hometown. After high school, I earned my Bachelor's degrees at Colorado State University in Biological Sciences, Natural Sciences, Education and a minor in Spanish.

I have been teaching middle and high school science for over nine years but have debuted as a Spanish, Technology and STEM teacher. I am an Apple Distinguished Educator, facilitator of the SVVSD Blended Learning collaborative, Design Thinking certified and a Discovery Education Star Educator. Throughout my years of teaching, I have coached soccer, track, and volleyball.

As a lifelong learner, I love listening to podcasts, reading educational articles on Twitter and taking professional developments. Also, I enjoy traveling and physical activities like hiking, snowboarding, and CrossFit. I have lived in Spain, been to 21 countries and all 50 states. I have a passion for exploring and sharing the surprising discoveries in science and technology.
