About the Teacher


Barbara Miller

I have taught English/Language Arts for over twenty years to remedial through gifted students from 7th to 12th grade, AP/dual credit university courses in three corporations and at one university. During my career, I have supervised and taught several student teachers and numerous pre-service teachers. Project Based Learning and choices that fit or extend learning styles and intelligences make my classroom activities engaging for students and filled with opportunities for academic growth. Many teacher professional development programs have supported my work. I hold an M.A. in Education and an Indiana High Ability Teaching License, am a Teacher Consultant for Indiana Writing Project, and have participated in many educator programs sponsored by the Lilly Endowment, National Consortium for the Teaching of Asia, National Endowment for the Humanities, US Department of State, Korea Academy for Educators, and Toyota International Teachers, among others. Additionally, I have been awarded many grants for classroom and school-wide projects, ranging from hundreds of dollars to $250,000. In addition, I have conducted professional development on writing workshop and differentiation in my own school, at conferences and events, and at schools in Peru and India. I am currently writing about my ancestors who taught Freedmen after the Civil War.
