Congratulations to Normandin Middle School Social Studies teacher, Mr. Miranda! He's been chosen as this month's 'Teacher of the Month!'

Mr. Miranda was nominated not once but twice, by one of his students. Here's what she had to say:

"My teacher is awesome because he pushes us so hard. However we learn so much. Also he makes it fun for us by making educational jokes or story's about what we are learning. My teacher, Mr. Miranda is a social studies teacher, and he gives homework assignments like look for current events. Honestly, I learn so much from that and I know what's going on around me. I couldn't ask for a better social studies teacher. My brother had him, and now I do too! I will definitely remember him forever. The hardest teachers are the best teachers. Like he said " we are making history" I just wish every kid in New Bedford could experience where I am today I am a straight (a) student cause he pushes me and I knew I could finally get all a's. I used to be so afraid of doing public speaking now I can do it like nothing, because of him and my English teacher. I hope everyone is thankful in my school to have a teacher like Mr. Miranda. That's why my teacher is awesome. I honestly can keep going on and on but I will write about 5 Paragraphs. I hope my teacher wins this cause honestly he is the best teacher I ever had. Thank you."
