Employee of the Week



When will my employee be recognized?


Maria Miller of Gretna Middle

Gretna Middle School is pleased to award Maria Miller the title of Employee of the Week. Although Mrs. Miller has only been at Gretna Middle School for two years, she has made an indelible imprint in the lives of GMS principals, teachers, parents, and students. The only word to describe her personality is vibrant because she adds light and laughter to the lives of those with whom she interacts.
She also is upholding a long tradition at GMS by enhancing our office and school culture by being a welcome presence when visitors enter the building. Assistant Principal Carter Lowry comments, “The transition from Dan River Middle to Gretna Middle was made easier thanks to the spirit of friendship and support provided by Mrs. Miller.” Principal Vera Glass adds, “Mrs. Miller is like a ray of sunshine which never dims even when clouds appear. I am grateful for her work ethic, and her willingness to assume additional responsibilities is highly appreciated. She is a super administrative assistant.”

Mrs. Miller earned an Associate Degree in Applied Science and Administrative Support Technology from Central Virginia Community College. She is married to Darryl Miller and has a son, Cordaris, who is a GMS seventh grader. She attends Elba Baptist Church. She enjoys reading, going to movies with her son, and working at home painting and hanging out with her son. “I have enjoyed my time at Gretna Middle School. The principals and staff have been a dream to work with each day.”
