Innovative and Practical Professional Development
My teacher career started in 1999. I was a high school math teacher for fourteen years before I began providing professional development for teachers and administrators. I have since written five books on education and provide online workshops as well as in person PD.
I am a Google Certified Innovator, Microsoft Innovative Innovator, New Media Consortium K12 Ambassador, and the founder of CoffeeEDU. My professional work includes developing math curriculum and innovative online courses, and leading collaborative teacher teams for projects with Google such as YouTube for Teachers and Google Play for Education.
My passion is helping all students succeed. Kids are not failures. Technology should improve learning through interactions, better feedback, increased relevance, and facilitating a student-centered classroom. I have a Bachelors degree in Mathematics and a Masters in Educational Media Design and Technology.

One of the most frequent questions educators Alice Keeler and Libbi Miller hear from teachers is: "How can I effectively implement digital tools in my classroom when I don't fully understand them myself?" It can be challenging to add new technology to the classroom. Figuring out the equipment and software and deciding how to integrate technology into existing lesson plans are just a few of the learning curves teachers face...
Today's technology empowers educators to move away from the traditional classroom where teachers lead and students work independently-each doing the same thing. In 50 Things to Go Further with Google Classroom: A Student-Centered Approach, authors and educators Alice Keeler and Libbi Miller offer inspiration and resources to help you create a digitally rich, engaging, student-centered environment...
Students hate it. Parents wonder if it’s worth the tears, frustration, and nightly arguments. Teachers debate whether it’s really helpful or just busywork that consumes their precious time. One thing everyone can agree on is that homework is a contentious topic. In Ditch That Homework, Matt Miller and Alice Keeler discuss the pros and cons of homework, why teachers assign it, and what life could look like without it...
