The Warsaw Area Career Center is excited to announce the addition of two new Engineering Technology Education teachers. 


Andrea Miller
Engineering/Manufacturing Teacher


Ms. Miller is teaching Project Lead the Way: Engineering Design & Development, Intro to Manufacturing, & Intro to Transportation. She graduated from Ball State University with a BFA- Metals & BS- Art Education and also earned her MFA in Metals from the University of Wisconsin- Madison. 

Andrea loves being outdoors, running, paddle boarding, riding her bike, walking her dog, traveling, & going camping. She describes herself as a "maker" and loves to make things: metalsmithing, knitting, sewing, building/construction, baking, etc. 

When asked to add anything else that's interesting about herself, she says: 


I really like avocados, chai lattes, & sparkling water. My dog is super cute. Teaching brings together my love of making things, the joy I find in building relationships, and an opportunity to impact my community.

This summer I drove over 7000 towing my little vintage camper, LeRoy, all through the SouthWest as part of my Lilly Grant Fellowship. I spent the year previous to the trip completely rebuilding the camper from the frame up.

My most current project is a collaboration with my dear friend, Amelia. We are putting together a three-part art exhibition at the Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca, New York. In 2020 the exhibition will celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment awarding women the right to vote.



Ryan Seagert
Engineering Technology Teacher

Mr. Seagert graduated from the University of Nebraska. He is teaching Project Lead the Way: Digital Electronics, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, Industrial Automation & Robotics I & II, Project Lead the Way: Honors Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering & Architecture, Preparing for College & Careers, Intro to Transportation, Robotics Design & Innovation, and Robotics Design & Innovation for Women.

In his spare time, he likes to read, watch TV, spend time with the cutest niece in the world, and go to the movies.
