Pleasant View Elementary School Principal Keith Miller announced Thursday that he is stepping down at the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
Miller plans to go back to the classroom to resume his love of teaching.
Miller has worked in the Cheatham County School District for 22 years. He taught at Sycamore Middle School, was the district Technology Integration Specialist and served as an assistant principal at Cheatham County Central High School and Cheatham Middle School before being named the PVES principal in 2011.
“The faculty, families, community and students have meant a great deal to me in my eight years at Pleasant View Elementary School, and I’m extremely proud of everything that we’ve accomplished. I will be returning to the classroom to get back to teaching; while teaching has its own time requirements, I am hoping that this will free up some time that I can use to finish my doctorate and to spend more time with my family. My children are getting older far too quickly and I want to have time with them while they are still young. I will miss everyone at Pleasant View Elementary, but I know that the community, families and teachers will continue to work together to do great things for the students,” he said.
The district is surveying the Pleasant View staff and parents to help determine the top qualities they believe the new principal should have.
