“Cape Proud” of ‘91 graduate Angie Biller
Angie Biller, Cape graduate of 1991 comes to work every day with a smile on her face, an amazing attitude, and is always willing to give a helping hand to anyone at anytime. I know this, because I work in the same office as Angie.
I first learned Angie was a Cape grad from one of our fellow workers, and I knew immediately that Angie had to be the topic of the next “Cape Proud” blog.
Angie’s family has a long history at Cape. Her entire family still resides within the Cape district. She grew up in Milton and was the daughter of the detective sergeant of the Rehoboth Police while she was in high school.
Angie’s parents, aunts, uncles and her grandfather were also graduates of Milton High School– a first grade through twelfth grade school at the time.
While at Cape, Angie attended HO Brittingham Elementary School, Milton Middle School and then Cape High.
While attending Cape, Angie loved everything about the district and fondly recalls the very nurturing Martha Shackley and her fifth grade teacher Janet Maull.
Upon graduation, Angie knew she would quickly return to our area and pursue a career in education.
Angie was awarded the prestigious “Christa McAuliffe” scholarship, a full tuition scholarship; she attended University of Delaware parallel program at Delaware State University and received a dual certificate in elementary education and special education. She graduated in 1996.
Immediately following graduation she returned to the Cape District as a long-term substitute in the resource center at her own elementary school HOB. At this time she also married her husband, who grew up just two miles down the road from Angie.
Angie left HOB and headed to nearby Rehoboth Elementary to fill a position as a special education teacher. She then had a son in 1998 and decided to pursue her master’s degree at Wilmington University. She eventually landed back at her own alma mater, HOB.
But Angie’s Cape history does not end there, she moved to Milton Junior High to take a position in ILC and remained there as the school transitioned to become Milton Middle School.
Finally, in 2010 Angie accepted a position at the Cape District office as the facilitator of special programs where she enjoys the wide reaching impact she has on the students in our district.
Angie still has close “Cape” family-ties; her own family now resides in a house on her grandfather’s farm in Milton. In fact, her cousin Sharon Chalabala who resides in a house on that same property also works at the district office as the supervisor of special programs & curriculum secretary.
Angie’s amazing personality, and her success make all of us as a community “Cape Proud”.
