My name is Freddy Miranda. I grew up right here in San Marcos, California so I’ve always felt a connection to the community here in North County. I only moved away to Orange County for four years while I attended UC Irvine (ZOT! ZOT! ZOT!). I got my bachelor of arts degree in Political Science with a Minor in Chicano/a & Latino/a Studies. After graduation, I moved back home and started as an academic coach at High Tech Middle North County (Thanks to my brother, Mr. Oscar over at HTeNC who told me they were hiring!). The connections I made with students during my first year as an academic coach solidified my passion for teaching. After four years in the academic coaching role, I joined the district internship program to obtain my teaching credential in mild/moderate special education.
