Featured Lesson Designer - Schoolhouse Teachers

Featured Lesson Designer

Michelle Howard Miller joined SchoolhouseTeachers.com in April 2012 and is the author of two courses. Her popular Monthly Book Lists for Families combine her love of reading and her extensive experience as a librarian. This series provides a highly detailed printable list of books for your family to consider. The list is broken down by genre: science, math, art, history, and more, and is also broken down by age. There are options for all ages in the areas of fiction and non-fiction. Each month has a main topic that each book relates to, such as snow, architecture, Florida, Africa, travel, gardening, and much more.

Connecting children with “just the right book” for their God-given giftings, interests, and studies is a passion of Michelle Howard Miller’s, due to the rich power of living books.  In childhood, Michelle made her baby sister patronize her pretend library; she now owns 25,000 living books, founded two real libraries to circulate them (Michigan & Florida), and happily advises and seeks ideal resources for each of her patrons there.  But, Michelle can also assist your family with deep consultations or precise book recommendations (on any subject) at www.LivingBooksLady.com, where you can also acquire access to her living-books database.

Michelle has also written an award-winning, spiritually probing curriculum, TruthQuest History, a Cathy Duffy “Top Pick” and the source of her second SchoolhouseTeachers.com course. Middle Ages History is a thirty-week literature-based living history course for 5th-12th grade. It focuses on spiritual truths and the story of the One who made mankind.

Michelle homeschooled her four children for 24 years and now serves as a columnist, speaker, consultant . . . and grandmother to seven cute boys. Michelle graduated summa cum laude from the University of Alabama.
