From a news release:
Edgar Miranda has been named principal of the International Community School in Decatur, a charter school in DeKalb County for grades K–5.
Miranda has more than 30 years of experience as a teacher and educational administrator. Most recently, he has been principal of Anglo-American School of Sofia, Bulgaria. He was a principal in Rochester (N.Y.) City School District and Hempstead (N.Y.) Union Free School District. His background also includes serving as director of The Xerox Center for Multicultural Education, SUNY Geneseo, N.Y., and director of bilingual education for Rochester (N.Y.) School District.
He has a master’s degree in educational administration from C.W. Post College and a master’s degree in bilingualism and a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Hofstra University.
International Community School fosters international diversity. Half of the school’s children are refugees or immigrants from 40 countries while the others are native-born Americans from local neighborhoods.
“Not only does Edgar Miranda have exceptional experience as a teacher and administrator for elementary school children, but he has worked extensively with non-English speaking students,” said Angela Hale, chairman of the board of International Community School. “Our students and teachers will benefit greatly from his insight, experience, wisdom and leadership.”
