Matthew Miller

Matthew Miller has mild cerebral palsy. It took him longer to learn to cook. He currently works as a sales associate at Wal-Mart. Before that, he was a cashier. He has also worked as a special education teacher, teacher assistant, and substitute teacher. He is a graduate of Culpeper County High School and earned an Associate of Arts and Sciences degree in education from Germanna Community College. He has a B.S. degree in special education and a Master of Arts degree in Human Relations. During college, he volunteered his time as a peer academic advisor, a student grader, and gave presentations of transition planning in special education and test-taking strategies. He types about 40 words a minute with his left hand only. He wrote ‘Overcoming Obstacles in Cooking’, http://ow.ly/x1hJ7, to encourage beginning cooks and those with disabilities not to give up. Like his mom did, he likes to bake desserts.
