U.S. Rep Smucker honors tech education teacher

U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker stopped by Penn Manor High School March 25 to congratulate technology education teacher Dr. Molly Miller on her appointment as president-elect of the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association.

Dr. Miller is serving one year as president-elect before assuming the presidency of the association in March 2025. The organization promotes the teaching of technology and the professionalism of those engaged in the field across the world.

Smucker presented her with a commendation that was read into the record of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“In an ever-changing world, teachers like Molly prepare students for careers and life beyond the walls of school that will be defined by the rapidly developing technological revolution,” Smucker says in the recognition.

“I want to commend Molly for her dedication to her students and preparing them to enter the technological workforce. I wish her all the best in her new position, in addition to her work at Penn Manor High School.”

Dr. Miller was approached about running for ITEEA president at the organization’s conference last year and was elected by members in the fall. ITEEA has about 1,500 members and represents thousands more technology and engineering educators at all levels around the world.

At Penn Manor, Dr. Miller teaches courses in Computer Science, Engineering Design, and Applied Science and has helped develop and expand Penn Manor’s STEM course offerings. She serves as the advisor for the district’s Technology Student Association (TSA).

Many thanks to Rep. Smucker for taking the time to honor this outstanding educator.
