Keynote Presentation by Angie Miller, 2011 New Hampshire Educator of the Year
Equity. Choice. Passion: Reading as an Act of Empowerment

Angie Miller has always been a reader’s reader. A middle and high school librarian in central New Hampshire, she is the 2011 New Hampshire Teacher of the Year, a TED speaker, National Geographic Teacher Fellow, and a freelance writer. After growing up in poverty, she has committed her teaching career to ensuring that all students have equity through literacy. When not in the classroom or library, Angie can usually be found adventuring in other countries, hiking, or immersed in small-farm life with her goats, chickens, turkeys, bees, dogs, husband, and kids.
