About Me

Hello!  My name is Layne Miller.  I grew up in Texas but have lived in New Prague since 2010.  I have 2 children ages 4 and 7.  I love Minnesota and I am making up for many years in Texas with no snow! :-) When it's not snowing, I love to take my children to the park and library, museums and zoos.  We love to read and some of our favorite authors are Eve Bunting, Tomie dePaola and Stan and Jan Berenstain.  I was formerly a third grade teacher in Texas and worked in Special Education and with English Language Learners.  When I first moved to New Prague I worked as a substitute teacher, a server at the golf course, and a waitress at Schumachers.  We have a wonderful community here and I am so thankful that my children are growing up in New Prague.  

Some of my favorite things are:


Anything historical...Did you know they found a time capsule when they were renovating?  So exciting to get a peek into life in 1923 New Prague!


Exploring nature with my children

Mexican cuisine (We have a great Mexican restaurant right here in town!)  I'm still trying to find BBQ as good as in Texas....

Chocolate and Cheesecake

Hiking and State Parks

Baking breads and muffins

I am looking forward to a great year in Preschool and learning more about all of you!
