The Mayor attended the final general meeting of the PCNS membership to surprise Miller. He read the proclamation to an audience of 70 including friends and family of the honored. Catherine Miller has dedicated herself to educating preschool children for 26 years. She holds a site supervisor's permit in child development from the California Credentialing Commission. She earned an associate's degree in early childhood education, serves as a professional growth advisor for college students, and is a certified mentor for early childhood teachers and directors. She taught at a variety of schools on the Peninsula, served as director for a large school in San Bruno, and owned and operated her own home-based childcare prior to becoming assistant director of Pacifica Co-op Nursery School in 2000.
