Jennifer Buehler, Ph.D.

Jennifer Buehler taught English for ten years before earning a Ph.D. from the University of Michiganís Joint Program in English and Education. As a high school teacher, she used young adult literature and a large classroom library to engage and inspire her students as readers. Watching students choose books led Jennifer to expand her own reading accordingly as part of the ongoing quest to meet the needs and interests of teens.

As a teacher consultant with the Eastern Michigan Writing Project, Jennifer led workshops on young adult literature for parents, teachers, and students in university methods classes. Now Assistant Professor of English Education at Saint Louis University, Jennifer teaches classes on young adult literature, English methods, writing pedagogy, content area literacy, and urban education. She was recently elected president of NCTE's Assembly on Literature for Adolescents (ALAN), and she served as a member of ALANís first Amelia Elizabeth Walden Award Committee.

Jennifer is the host of Text Messages: Recommendations for Teen Readers, a monthly podcast focusing on the best of young adult literature.
