Craig Miller

High School Teacher

Craig Miller has taught in and chaired departments of humanities, history, and social studies in public, international, and independent schools over the past 20 years. His love of curriculum design and teaching began when he was a Peace Corps volunteer in Mali and led to a master’s in education from Stanford. The real-world learning that came with living and working abroad for many years motivates his ongoing search for ways to bring experiential education to his students. Having designed and taught a wide range of courses, including Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and elective courses, he is most intrigued by project-based courses that encourage students to wrestle with the world’s seemingly intractable problems.
