Carmen Miranda, EdD, assistant professor at the Universidad Ana G. Méndez, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in English academia.
Dr. Miranda leverages nearly five decades of experience as a proven educator. In 2008, she joined the Universidad Ana G. Méndez as an assistant professor, where she teaches various writing courses to students at all college levels. Additionally, she remains active at the university’s writing center, where she supports her department as a whole and students in need of additional assistance. While she is well-versed in guiding group lectures, Dr. Miranda particularly enjoys one-on-one collaboration with her students believing it allows for the fullest learning experience.
Before joining her current institution, Dr. Miranda excelled as a teacher in her local public school system from 1975 to 2008. During this time, she taught at the grade school, middle school and high school levels. To commemorate her earliest achievements, her school system previously honored her as the Teacher of the Year. Ever committed to her profession, Dr. Miranda maintains her affiliation with the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) International Association and the Puerto Rico Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (PRTESOL) Puerto Rico. Furthermore, she has served as the president or PRTESOL’s eastern chapter since 2020.
Well-regarded for her scholarly output as well, Dr. Miranda has been featured in various articles. She also authored her dissertation, titled “Generation Z: Rethinking, Teaching and Learning” and published in the TESOLgram. Before embarking on her vocational journey, she cultivated her own formal education, originally earning a bachelor’s degree in elementary and secondary education from Universidad de Puerto Rico. She subsequently attended the Universidad Ana G. Mendez and received a master’s degree in English as a second language. Dr. Miranda ultimately achieved a doctorate in curriculum instruction at Capella University.
In light of her fulfilling career, Dr. Miranda has largely attributed her success to her passion for her profession. To wit, she fostered a love of teaching from young age, and so she naturally gravitated toward a fulfilling career as an educator. While she is proud of her professional achievements, she is most notably proud of her three children. Looking to the future, Dr. Miranda hopes to further build upon her skills in educational leadership and guide others as a teacher for several more years before easing into her retirement and spending more time with her family.
