HOST

Jennifer Buehler, Ph.D.

Jennifer Buehler, Ph.D.

Jennifer Buehler taught English for ten years before earning a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan's Joint Program in English and Education. As a high school teacher, she developed an 800-book classroom library designed to engage and inspire her ninth grade students as readers. Watching students select reading materials led Jennifer to expand her own reading accordingly, allowing her to match books successfully with teens' wide-ranging tastes and interests.

As a teacher consultant with the Eastern Michigan Writing Project, Jennifer regularly led workshops on young adult literature for parents, area teachers, and students in university methods classes. Now Assistant Professor of English Education at Saint Louis University, Jennifer teaches classes on English methods and young adult literature.  She serves on the board of NCTE's Assembly on Literature for Adolescents (ALAN), and she was a member of ALAN's first Amelia Elizabeth Walden Award Committee.


In addition to writing for ReadWriteThink, Jennifer is the host of Text Messages: Recommendations for Teen Readers, a monthly podcast focusing on the best of new young adult literature.
