Simple, Caring, and Modest
These are words that appear to apply to Mr. Miller. They are also character traits important for a person to have in Judaism. If a person feels truly blessed and good about him-her-self, (s)he will usually not need to overdo the external things in life. Mr. Miller seems to be one of these people. May he live in good health and contentment until 120!

Well, G-D bless this man! He is an inspiration and role model to us all to have such commitment and drive, not to mention so mentally sharp at 93! Kindness radiates from his eyes-he looks like a really good soul. His students are so lucky to have him! I never had any good Math teachers which is a real shame; I wish Mr. Miller was my teacher and that more teachers were like him! And thank you Aish for posting this wonderful article.

May G-d continue to give Mr. Miller health and wisdom till 120. I wish I could have had him as my Math teacher. Maybe then I would have learned it better.
