About the Instructor

Dr. Newton Miller has been committed to the education arena since the 1990’s when converted non-traditionally from the ranks of the engineering field.  His research interest lies within educating at-potential populations, focusing on the systemic thinking tied to student achievement, effective school cultures, and facilitating programming and instruction that promotes educational success within non-traditional and marginalized adult populations.

Some of Dr. Miller’s contributions to the world of education have been lauded by honors like the Impact Award from the Urban League, 2018; Provost Award for Outstanding Faculty, from Ashford University, 2014 and the Excellence in Teaching Award from Swarthmore College, 2012. He is the author of “Why Some Seeds Don’t Grow” a book that sheds light on high impact principles needed to enhance the educating, mentoring and parenting of urban youth.

Dr. Miller believes educators are meant to facilitate the thinking that changes the world; thus his mantra is: Educate … Motivate … Help Them Grow!

Fun Fact:  Dr. Miller’s dream job was as a Structural Engineer until he stood in front of a classroom of knowledge-hungry, inner-city students.  It was at that moment he knew his true purpose and career path was to be an educator.
