SFCS welcomes 5th-6th grade teacher Erika Miranda. We're thrilled to have her join our amazing staff!
Erika Miranda earned her B.A. degree in Education from Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA. There, she continued her graduate studies and earned her K-8 Multiple Subject Teaching Credential as well as her supplementary credential in English. Ms. Miranda has taught upper elementary grades for the past two years, including one year as a GATE teacher, and loves the inquisitive and independent nature of 5th and 6th graders. She loves helping students find their confidence by teaching them to think for themselves and master the skills of reading and writing. Her background includes teaching at alternative schools in the San Francisco Bay Area where a culture of high expectations met project-based and inquiry-based instruction. By incorporating the fine arts and movement into the classroom, she hopes all students can become engaged and active learners in all subjects. Erika Miranda is thrilled to be teaching and living in the Sierra Foothills, as she spent eight years, off and on, working in Yosemite Valley and in the High Sierra Camps. She is excited to be teaching at a small school with a unique environment that can positively impact her students' hands-on and inquiry-based learning in science.
