Hi, I’m Miranda and YES, I'm holding a baby sloth!


I live by the motto of "once a teacher, always a teacher." Before starting as A+PEL's Director of Programs​ in 2014, I served 11 years in the classroom. 7 of those years were spent teaching 5th grade ELA and Social Studies while the other 4 years were spent as an Instructional Coach and TAP Master Teacher. I'm now A+PEL's Deputy Director and I oversee special projects that include a yearly summer camp for teachers called Camp A+PEL, an annual Louisiana history conference, teacher improvement initiatives with several area Catholic schools, and University programs that support future teachers. When I'm not wearing my A+PEL hat, I am driving the mom-taxi (my mini-van) for my three children ages 2, 6, and 10. With a spouse who is also in education, our children don't stand a chance to have poor grammar. In all my spare time (yeah, right), I geek out over planning our next Disney vacation, designing jewelry, and taking long walks down the aisles of Target without my kids in tow.
