Dorothy Miller has done a variety of things in her life: taught high school, directed a career counseling agency for women, edited a medical newsletter, and raised a family. Miller has been teaching in the English department since 1980. Teaching allows her to combine what she loves to do and is good at.
Miller's family is important to her, which is why she finds herself loving her students.
She has traveled extensively all over Europe and to more exotic places like Turkey, China, Thailand, Burma, and West Africa, which is why she is drawn to teaching literary works about different cultures.
In addition to writing, she has painted, worked in stained glass, and designed jewelry; along with her knowledge of literature she uses her creative side when she teaches and tries to foster the creativity of her students.
