Mike Miller
Mike Miller is the Manager of the
Austin History Center, Austin Public
Library, where he directs all operations of the Center, which basically
means he pushes a lot of paper and
attends meetings and his staff gets
to do all the fun work. The Austin History Center is the local archives division of the public library and is dedicated to preserving and celebrating
the history of Austin and Travis Room
County. He has a BA in History from
St. Edward's University and Master's
degrees in History and Information
Science from the University of North
Texas. Prior to coming to the History
Center, he worked as the Special
Collections Librarian in the Texas/Dallas History & Archives Division of the
Dallas Public Library where he curated the Historic Maps and Kennedy
Assassination collections. His primary
research interests are in Texas sports
history, and he has published articles
on minor league ice hockey in Dallas; he is currently working on a book
on ice hockey in Texas. While the hip
check may be a lost art on the ice, it
can come in handy during a budget
meeting. In addition to his work at
the History Center, Mike is also active
with the Archivists of Central Texas,
Society of Southwest Archivists, Texas
State Historical Association and is a
Certified Archivist.

Dr. Janet Zadina,

Educational Neuroscientist who sees
brain research through the eyes of
a teacher because she is a cognitive neuroscientist with many years

school and community college
level. She bridges the fields of education and neuroscience through
her work as a researcher, teacher,
author and international speaker. She
received her doctorate in the College of Education at the University of
New Orleans, conducting her awardwinning dissertation research on the
neuroanatomy of dyslexia through
collaboration with Tulane University
School of Medicine. She continued
her postdoctoral education with a
Fellowship in Cognitive Neuroscience
in the Department of Psychiatry and
Neurology at Tulane University School
of Medicine where she researched
neuroanatomical risk factors for developmental language disorders through
MRI brain scans. Dr. Zadina is author

Classroom – A Workbook for Educators, among other books. She is the
founder of Brain Research and Instruction and has presented keynotes and
