Miles started both Japanese language programs at UT Tyler and Tyler Junior College. He has led travel study courses in Japan, started an anime club and is currently teaching first and second year Japanese at UT Tyler and TJC.
Miles holds a bachelor of arts and master of arts, both from the University of Iowa.
