Heather Miller is an American educator and writer with expertise in the teaching of reading and writing. She holds graduate degrees from Harvard and MIT. While at MIT, she founded the Young Historians Program, an organization that engages middle and high school students in historical inquiry and digital arts. For much of her career, Miller has worked as an editorial director overseeing the design and development of large-scale reading and writing programs. As an educational consultant to charter and public schools, she has helped schools achieve marked improvement and overall high achievement in test scores (and hopefully in much more that education is all about, too).
