Edgar Miranda was born in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico and raised in East Harlem, New York, attending primary and high school in Manhattan. For almost 50 years, he has worked in public education with students, teachers and parents from multiple language and cultural groups designing, implementing and supervising instructional programs.

All are welcome!
