Damon Miller, 44, a former fifth-grade teacher at Parkwood Hill Intermediate School, was arrested by Keller police March 4 on suspicion of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

According to the arrest warrant, the charge stems from an alleged incident in October 2010 at Miller’s home in Keller involving the 5-year-old daughter of a friend.

Keller district officials said that Miller resigned his teaching position on Feb. 22, citing personal reasons.

District administrators sent letters to all Parkwood Hill parents by email and regular mail on March 7 to inform them of the arrest and said they would have counselors available at the school to talk with any students who have questions or concerns.

Keller district officials issued a public statement: “We are aware of the arrest and investigation, but most importantly we are focused on our students and families at this time. We believe this is a matter best discussed at home with parents or with a counselor at school. We have no indication that the reported incident has any connection to the campus or students of Keller ISD.”
