Talia Miller is the Librarian and Service-Learning Coordinator at Colrain Central School in Colrain, MA. Colrain Central School serves around one hundred and ten students in PreK-6th grade from two rural towns. This is Talia’s sixth year in the school. In her role, Talia helps to support teachers and to build community partnerships that allow students to apply what they've learned to real-life needs in the community. In addition, she teachers library and technology skills to all the students in the school.
Talia grew up in the urban center of Minneapolis, Minnesota, but found her rural calling during years of summer camp in the North Woods of Minnesota. Since then, she has lived in rural settings whenever possible, including work as a camp caretaker, where she was the only person in residence for miles around. Previously, Talia was honored with a Rural Schools Collaborative “Grants in Place Fellowship” in 2021-2022 for a school-wide service project and is participating in the Rural Educators Across Borders with RSt. Talia loves spending time with her family in the outdoors, running, and taking walks in the woods with her Springerdoodle.
