sj Miller (born March 20, 1970)[1] is an American academic, public speaker, social justice activist,[2] Associate Professor of Teacher Education at the Santa Fe Community College,[3] and Adjunct Associate Faculty in the Peabody College, Department of Leadership, Policy and Organizations at Vanderbilt University.[4] Miller is agender and does not use any personal pronouns.[5][6]

Early life and education[edit]

Miller was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico, attending Santa Fe High School.[2][7][8] Miller taught middle and high school English for eight years before going on to earn a PhD in Educational Thought and Socio-Cultural Studies from the University of New Mexico.[2][6]

Miller medically transitioned from female toward male while working as an assistant professor at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.[7] Miller was disowned by Miller's father after coming out as agender-transgender.[9]

Career[edit]

Miller has held teaching positions at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and University of Missouri-Kansas City.[2] Miller served as an associate professor of literary studies at University of Colorado Boulder.[2]

In the fall of 2010, Miller helped draft the Beliefs Statement about Social Justice in English Education and helped pass the Resolution on Social Justice in Literacy Education, which informed the newly-vetted CAEP Social Justice Standard 6-the first ever standard in the United States that advances social justice work in teacher preparation for the National Council of Teachers of English.[10][11] In April 2016, Miller was selected for a project hosted by UNESCO-MGIEP (Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development) to integrate social justice education into the mainstream school curriculum.[10][12]

In 2016, Miller was hired as Deputy Director of Educational Equity at the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University.[5][13]

In 2019, Miller is now Associate Professor of Teacher Education in the Teacher Academy at the Santa Fe Community College, Santa Fe, New Mexico.[14]

In 2020, Miller returned to Santa Fe High School as the new girls soccer coach; coaching the same team Miller once played on in the 1980s.[8]

Advocacy[edit]

Miller has written and spoken nationally and internationally about the impact of bullying on youth, particularly young people whose gender identities are nonconforming and those in the LGBTQ community.[15]

Following the Donald Trump administration's withdrawal of federal guidance on gender identity under Title IX, Miller spoke out in support of transgender youth in a February 2017 interview on CBSN.[16]

In March 2017, Miller was featured in the CBSN documentary Gender: The Space Between, which focused on gender fluidity.[17]

In 2018, Miller gave the TEDMED talk: Why Gender Identity Justice Matters for Everyone.[18]
