Don Miller is on the faculty of the Department of American Sign Language and Deaf Studies. In addition to teaching courses, he coordinates the Undergraduate American Sign Language (ASL) Program.
After receiving his B.A. from Gallaudet in 1999, he worked as a recruiter for the Office of Admissions. As a recruiter, he visited many schools and programs for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, and this is how he decided he wanted to become a teacher. After a year on the road, he began his masters' study in Deaf Education at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, obtaining a M.S. in Deaf Education in 2005.
He enjoys teaching students who want to teach ASL in the future.
In the Fall of 2013, he started his doctoral study in the Critical Studies in the Education of Deaf Learners program with Gallaudet's Department of Education.
His goal is to see ASL taught to deaf students in K-12 on an equal footing as English being taught to hearing students.
