    Don Garlock Award, 2021-2022 School Year

    • This annual award is given to a young educator (across all schools in the Cave Spring district) that has made a significant impact in the field of education.
  • Welcome

    Hello! My name is Miss Prill, and I am thrilled to be your English teacher for the 2022-2023 school year.

    My primary class page is housed in Canvas. Details about the syllabus, assignments, and class procedures can be found through this portal. 

  • Educational Background & Beliefs

    After graduating from Virginia Tech in 2018, I taught English for four years at Cave Spring High School in Roanoke, VA. This will be my first year at Cox Mill High School, and I am delighted to be a charger!

    A student-centered pedagogy is at the heart of my educational practices: students’ abilities, needs, and interests are the driving force behind assessments, lessons, and activities in the classroom. Additionally, I believe the foundation of a safe and authentic learning environment is meaningful interaction and relationships with students.

    I am convinced that these connections, especially when paired with PBIS, can be the catalyst of student empowerment and development...and there is nothing more profound than a student body who believes in themselves, their abilities, and their potential for a bright future!
