Ms. Kayla Mills
Hi! My name is Ms. Mills. This is my 13th year to teach elementary school in the Denton Independent School District. The last 4 years I have specialized in teaching English Language Arts - Reading/Writing and Social Studies to fifth graders at Nelson Elementary. My dominant strengths are learner, achiever, relator, positivity, and connectedness. The connection between the education your child has already received and what they will need to know as a 6th grader fuels my deep sense of responsibility to your student and my profession. Learning together, building relationships, having fun and high standards motivate students to accomplish amazing things in a short time.
North Texas is home to me. I grew up in the Denison/Sherman area, moved to Dallas, and eventually settled in Denton. My three children and their young families live close, too, which is a blessing. I love Denton's small town feel and big city opportunities, especially in the area of education.
Teaching has always been my passion. The year ahead will be an exciting one, and I am honored to be a part of your child's educational journey.
