Miranda was born and raised in Marietta, Georgia and has one sibling — an older brother. After graduating from Kennesaw State University with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education, she received her certification in special education, allowing her to live out her life’s calling.
Miranda’s passion for working with children with differences was first sparked several years ago when her family volunteered for the Special Olympics. It was there that she realized this calling was something that made her come alive.
After finishing her undergraduate studies at Kennesaw State, Miranda began working in a public school in the Cobb County School District as a K-2 Autism teacher. There, she worked with students of various cognitive and social/communication levels in a self-contained autism classroom. Miranda also volunteers at her church working with children with special needs. She has discovered the importance of combining curriculum, social skills, and building relationships with both students and parents in order to help each child succeed in the day to day.
In her free time, Miranda loves to be outdoors, at the lake, or with friends and family. She currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with three close girlfriends. Working at Cloverleaf – a school that has the same dreams, values, and beliefs as hers – is a dream come true.
