Ms. Miranda was nominated by Kiara Martinez, an 4th grader at PVIS. Kiara stated that Ms. Miranda has made a big difference in her life and has helped her to become more confident.  Kiara states, "She is always there for me to encourage me and made me believe that it would get easier.  She would stay in with me for recess to help me with assignments that I struggled with to help make me a better student. She is outgoing and dedicated toward the school, faculty and the students. She is also a strict, understanding, encouraging, fun and very appreciative teacher.  As a teacher for the past 27 years, 7 at PVIS, she makes learning "fun”.  

Along with the honor of being named Teacher of the Year, Ms. Miranda was also awarded a trophy and a check for $500 to be used in her classroom next school year.
