New Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister has named a longtime educator from the Oklahoma City area as the first person to take a leadership position in her administration.

Hofmeister said Thursday that Robyn Miller will oversee policy research and development as well as teacher quality initiatives for the state Department of Education.

Miller comes to the agency from Oklahoma Christian University in Edmond, where she has served as chair of the School of Education since 2007.

In addition to her work advising future teachers, Miller has volunteered her time to serve Oklahoma students. She was appointed by Gov. Mary Fallin to the commission for the Office of Educational Quality and Accountability, a merging of the Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation and the Office of Accountability.
