Teddy Miller

ONE EXISTS THROUGH ALL THINGS
WHETHER AN ALPINE MEADOW
OR THE LIGHTS OF THE CITY
WHETHER THE SONG OF THE WHALE
OR THE NOISE OF THE HARBOR
ALL THINGS WHETHER FROM MAN OR NATURE
ARE THINGS TO ENJOY
JUDGE NOT THEIR SOURCE
ONE EXISTS IN ALL THINGS

In Memory of Teddy Miller
October 2 1987

Teddy R. Miller, an Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) student, began working at the Instructional Center (IC) as a peer tutor in Mathematics in 1981. It was soon discovered that Teddy was also proficient in chemistry and biology. Not only was Teddy competent in his ability to effectively teach these subjects, but he was also astute in solving conceptual and calculation based problems. Teddy graduated from the University of Washington in 1982 with a degree in Biology. He later earned a teaching certificate and a BA in Chemistry (1985).

In Autumn Quarter of 1982, the Instructional Center transfered Teddy to the newly established Chemistry & Biology Program where his performance as the lead tutor was exemplary. While serving in this role, Teddy also demonstrated the notable ability to read textbooks and comprehend the content without the aid of lecture notes or outside consultation. His exceptional ability to absorb the material, analyse data, and then explain these concepts and principles to the students made it possible for him to branch out as a tutor for physics and engineering courses. In 1985 he was hired as a professional instructor for the Physics & Engineering Dropin Center. Teddy became an outstanding teacher who motivated his students to excel. He was respected by his fellow instructors and touched the lives of his students.

Following his untimely demise in October of 1987, Clifford and Juanita Miller established the Teddy R. Miller EOP Endowment in memory of their son. Two awards are funded from this endowment, the Teddy Miller Peer Tutor Award and the Teddy R. Miller Scholarship Award. These awards are presented at the Office of Minority Affairs Instructional Center during Spring Quarter each academic year to an outstanding peer tutor and to an EOP student.
