About Me

Hello everyone, my name is Jennifer Miller. I live in Costa Mesa, CA. I am a high school English teacher at Mark Keppel High School in Alhambra, CA. I learn more each year from my students than I thought possible. I received my BA in liberal arts and my MA in education from Chapman University. I hold both a multiple subject and single subject CA teaching credential. I am also back in school to receive my second MA in English and Writing. It looks like I am going to have to begin writing a book as an application for two of my courses, so those of you that have done that, I would love the help!  I hope to expand my horizons to teaching literature at a University level, while staying with my wonderful public school students.

In my free time, I enjoy reading everything I can get my hands on, although my secret favorite recently is Young Adult literature,especially Stephanie Meyers and P.C. Cast.  I’m looking into getting a new cat and dog as soon as possible.  I also want to get back into swimming and jogging.  Any suggestions?

    I read your review of The Book Thief and thought you might be interested in reading my memoir, The Night Sky: A Journey from Dachau to Denver and Back. It’s about my 43-year search for my biological father who disappeared shortly after my birth in war-torn Germany. As I take the reader on my journey between the past and the present in Ukraine, Poland, Germany, Russia, and my association with a former KGB agent to solve a decades-long mystery, I learn the family secrets of untold heroism, quiet courage, and a mother’s love – and of tragedy, disillusionment and heartbreak. At the end of my long journey, I uncover a shattering and painful truth. But the secret, however heartbreaking, would also become the greatest gift I would receive.

    If you’re interested, search for “Maria Sutton” in Amazon.com. Thanks!

    P.S. I really enjoyed your website!

    • Thank you. I appreciate the tip. I do read adult books, but once I found that a lot of my students were reading my reviews, I stopped reviewing adult books. I encourage my students to read as much as possible, but I don’t want to be the one responsible for putting a book that their parents may not approve of in their hands. I will keep your book in mind for my personal reading.
