Meet Your Principal
Mrs. Robyn Yarbrough
Mrs. Robyn Yarbrough is thrilled to begin her first year as principal of G.B. Miller Elementary School. Prior to this, she was the principal of Los Coyotes School for eight years. She began her career as a classroom teacher in the Centralia School District in 1998, and has worked as a Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA) and Community Liaison at Walter Knott and Danbrook Schools. She is currently the Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) Coach for the district.
Mrs. Yarbrough earned her bachelor’s degree in communications and master’s degree in Educational Leadership from California State University, Fullerton. She has had the honor of serving as a Mentor Principal, and is on the CSUF Education Administration Advisory Board. Under her leadership, her school has won both the California Distinguished School and Gold Ribbon awards. The philosophy that permeates her decisions and actions is that a high quality education is a fundamental right for every child, and is a critical component in raising citizens who can actively and effectively engage in a challenging society. To that end, it is the school’s mission to provide the foundational learning upon which students will build. This year, Miller School looks forward to enhancing their Visual and Performing Arts program, and augmenting the use of Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) and Project Based Learning (PBL).
Ms. Yarbrough lives in Buena Park with her husband of 33 years. They enjoy traveling, and are very devoted Seahawks fans, making an annual pilgrimage (or two, depending on whether they make the playoffs) to Seattle for home games. She has two sons, a computer software engineer and a freelance writer. Both sons graduated from CSUF as Titans. They share their home with assorted lost and found animals, the current count being one very large rescue dog and several cats.
