Hi, I love teaching at Trip! My favorite subjects are math and science. I love to see young minds become curious, understand new concepts, and apply what they learn to new ideas and make connections. Building positive relationships with students and parents is a goal of mine, and it makes a difference in student effort and growth.
I went to Georgia State University, and I currently hold a masters degree in teaching along with a gifted certificate. I have been Teacher of the Year twice (2010 & 2018) and earned the Science Teacher of Promise for the state of Georgia in 2010.


My Favorites:
Colors: Purple and Green
Food: Chick-fil-A and Zoes
Drinks: iced coffee with milk and sugar
Chips: Garden Salsa Sun Chips
Candy: Peanut m&ms and Kit Kats

Bonjour! I am Mackie Miley and I am very excited to be a part of Trip Elementary. My education career started in Toulouse, France in 2010 where I taught ESOL classes for 6 months. After that, I knew I wanted to teach and travel so I ended up in Bangkok, Thailand working in a British International school for three years. I decided to return to the US in 2015 to get my Masters at Johns Hopkins University and, afterwards, I relocated to Georgia. I am currently the 4th grade DLI teacher and I absolutely love it!

I am excited to continue my teaching career here at Trip in 4th Grade! I was born, raised, and began teaching in New York but happy to be here in Georgia with my family. I received both my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with minors in Early childhood Education and Black Studies and a Master of Science in Education at Herbert H. Lehman College (CUNY) in New York. I am Gifted Certified and currently pursuing a Specialist Degree in Education with ESOL Endorsement.

I am blessed to have my wonderful family who continue to motivate me in my career and my beautiful children who I am very proud of. I enjoy spending time with my family, taking long trips, listening to music, writing poetry, reading African American literature, decorating, watching documentaries and scary movies.

As an educator, I enjoy being able to provide foundational skills, motivation, and the determination needed for my students to grow into productive and innovative individuals. Teaching is my passion and each one of my students make teaching even more rewarding!
