Mr. Daniel Tilley

My name is Daniel Tilley and I am the assistant principal here at Millis Road Elementary. It is an honor to serve the Roadrunner family and to be a part of this amazing community. I am humbled each day by the opportunity to serve the best school in Guilford County!

I was born and raised in Eden, North Carolina and attended Morehead High School. I then went on to attend Greensboro College and graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Special Education. I also played baseball while attending Greensboro and was the President of the Council for Exceptional Children at the college. I then taught as an exceptional children’s teacher at Bessemer Elementary and Pearce Elementary. While teaching, I obtained my Master’s in School Administration from UNCG. I am happily married to my wife Alexis, and we have a son named Braxton. We love to stay busy by spending time with family and friends and traveling. In my free time I love to read, play basketball, and run half marathons and marathons.

I believe that all children deserve the highest quality of education possible. As educators, it is our responsibility to prepare all our students for success in their future endeavors. As a school administrator I will always strive to make decisions that are centered around what is best for the scholars in our building. I will help build an environment where students feel loved and supported. It is my belief that we must create equitable spaces where our children can learn, grow, and flourish. I truly believe that Millis Road is the best school in the county and will do whatever it takes to keep it that way!
