Mr. Kardel Miller
I am honored to serve as the principal of Windsong Ranch Elementary. This will be my fifth year in PISD. I am looking forward to seeing all of our returning students and meeting our new students and their families. My goal will be to foster a positive educational environment for each and every student, staff member, as well as the community. By challenging and encouraging students, they will not only succeed but be prepared for and embrace a lifetime of learning.
Born into a long line of teachers, education is in my blood. I grew up in a small town in South Dakota. There, I met my high school sweetheart Kim (and now, wife of 25 years), and obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education at Dakota Wesleyan University. From there, we moved to Texas. I began teaching 5th Grade Math & Science. After years in the classroom, I decided to pursue my Masters in Education and graduated from Lamar University. I had the opportunity to be an assistant principal for four years and jumped at the opportunity to serve as a principal in PISD.
We have 2 boys, Mitchell and Grant, that keep us busy with a flurry of activities. When I’m not attending one of their events, I enjoy family time, watching football (the Huskers on Saturday and the Steelers on Sunday), working out and being outdoors.

I am truly honored to be the Assistant Principal at Windsong Ranch Elementary again this year! I have been in education for 26 years as a teacher and leader. Each year has intensified my love of learning and passion for kids. I believe every child deserves a positive, nurturing, and challenging environment that is conducive to his/her learning style.
I grew up in Oklahoma, but most of my career experiences have been in Texas. I have taught 3rd-6th grades, all subjects, self-contained and departmentalized settings. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Education from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and have my Masters in Administration from Lamar University.
I have been married 20 years and have two teenage sons that attend Prosper High School. My oldest is a senior and my youngest is a sophomore. Spending time with my family and friends is what I enjoy the most! Camping and taking in nature’s beauty and wildlife is what I love to do in my spare time. If there is a body of water (pool, lake, river, waterfall, or ocean) I will be taking it all in and relaxing.
I couldn’t be more proud to serve you, your child, and the staff at Windsong! Despite the pandemic, we WILL have an amazing year together!
