How has this person changed your life?:
Mrs. Miranda always has a smile for everyone she meets. She has impacted my life the moment she picked my application to hire me. She encourages me to keep studying to become a teacher, because that's my dream. I have witnessed when she helps children calm down who have anxiety. She supports students at their football games. She visited Maria the custodian at the hospital after her surgery. A co-worker had an incident with his dad, and Mrs. Miranda and Mrs. Jones allowed him to sell food at school to help out with costs. She is always buying food and making sure he is ok. I feel so blessed to have her as a leader because she is kind, supportive, and positive. She inspires me to continue studying, because even though she is busy all the time she is currently working on her dissertation. Mrs. Miranda is a super woman. If anyone deserves this award is Mrs. Miranda. Please consider her because these are the few things that I have learned from her and I have only known her for a year so far. She always makes sure everyone is content and she does her job with joy. She never says "No" to you when you need her. She has inspired me to grow as a person and in my career. I want to grow to be like her. She is loving to all students and staff. On Christmas last year she gave every teacher, every Paraprofessional, every custodian, and all cafeteria ladies a gift. It's not the gift that matters, it's the beauty of the thought. Well in reality she is the best gift we could ever have. Having her as an assistant principal is a blessing.
