Rick Millican is an English and AVID classroom teacher at El Cajon Valley High School in El Cajon, California. He holds a BA, teaching credential, and Master of Education degree from San Diego State University. He has studied expository critical reading through trainings from the California State University system and through close association and work with Jonathan LeMaster, author of the AVID book Critical Reading: Deep Reading Strategies for Expository Texts.

In addition to his work in the classroom with critical reading, Rick was the second staff developer chosen by AVID Center to expand the capacity of the critical reading strand of AVID Summer Institute. More recently AVID has hired him to write several of the texts used in the Critical Reading 1 strand as well rewrite the CR1 syllabus for the new 3-day summer institute model.

Rick looks forward to expanding his capacities as a Senior Coach for LiteracyTA. He is convinced of the importance of teaching analytical reading to all our students as an important step in their literacy development and success in secondary and postsecondary education.
