Dr. Clarence Miller joined Alliance as principal of Alliance Simon Tech in June 2011. He previously served as a school administrator at Long Beach Polytechnic High School and several high schools in Texas, and as a teacher, coach and guidance counselor in New York. He co-founded and later served as the first director of the educational opportunity program (Project New City) at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh where he developed his passion for educating students with limited opportunities for success. This passion was further fueled by work with migrant students during his tenure with the State Education Department in New York. While completing his Doctor of Philosophy degree at the University of Texas, Austin, Dr. Miller served as a director at Tutoring for Reading Improvement, Math Achievement, and Counseling Services (TRI-MAC), a non-profit organization created to support minority students in the Austin Independent School District. He has a proven track record of success in working with special needs students and potential high school dropouts.
