The Education Leadership Program in the Department of Organization and Leadership
Miriam Garcia is a 4th and 5th grade Special Education Inclusion teacher at Powell Elementary School in the District of Columbia. Powell Elementary serves students from low-income Spanish-speaking backgrounds and 100% of students qualify for free and reduced lunch. As a Special Education, Miriam works hard to meet each student’s learning needs by collaborating with general education teachers to develop engaging and differentiated lessons. Miriam began her teaching career in Los Angeles, California, while completing her two-year commitment with Teach for America. She looks forward to developing leadership skills needed to become a school principal and make a transformational change not only within the special education program, but also with the greater school community.
