Rabbi David Miller

General Studies Principal

Rabbi David Miller worked for more than 25 years as a classroom teacher before taking his current role as Director of General Studies at Tashbar SYK. He uses this vast experience as well as his impressive educational background – including a Master’s Degree in Education, a Clear California State Teaching Credential for Kindergarten through 12th Grade and most recently a Parent Education Certificate from UCLA – to run his department at the highest standards. As Director of General Studies since 2004, Rabbi Miller is responsible for the General Studies program in Pre-1 through 8th Grade. This role includes curriculum development, instruction, teacher mentoring and supervision as well as overseeing the academic and personal growth of our students. With a clear picture of how the General Studies and Judaic Studies departments function in a dual curriculum school, Rabbi Miller, together with the rest of our staff, is dedicated to maintain an educational environment that stresses character development along with academic excellence. Rabbi Miller is inspired by the achdut among the staff, students and families and their dedication toward the common goal of developing self-confidence, leadership and an appreciation for the world around us.
