My name is Miranda deVroomen and I am twenty-six years old. I grew up in Northern Kentucky on a Russian Arabian horse farm. I attended Ninety Six High School and Francis Marion University, both in South Carolina.
Since graduating with a B.S. in Political Science, I joined the Peace Corps and lived in Niquinohomo, Nicaragua as a high school Business teacher. This was the best and worst experience of my life. I discovered many things about myself that I did not know. For example, I enjoy travelling and I can teach! Ultimately, my project was canceled due to security reasons.
Now, I am back in Florence, SC and have worked almost three years in Customer Service and International Relations. I lost my job in March due to a corporate reduction in force, which motivated me to pursue my Master’s in Education at the University of Phoenix on-line.
My favorite things to do include jogging with my dog, Mac, and playing with my nieces and nephews (I have 8 of them).
My goals for each class include learning the basics of Spanish and the applications of this language in life. I want the students to have fun and learn the vocabulary through songs and games. I look forward to a great school year!
