Miriam Lane has over 14 years of educational experience as both a teacher and a professional school counselor. As society is constantly changing, being able to accept our youth as they are, assist our youth where they are, and advocate for our youth is a challenge that she has accepted and will continue to take on. She is a proud advocate for student and teacher growth and promotes this through professional development and mentoring sessions within her school district. She believes as an educator there are many aspects of education that need to transform for the good of our students and teachers and believe with guidance and support student and teacher growth is achievable.
Miriam Lane obtained her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Saint Augustine's University in Raleigh, NC. She began her educational career as an elementary school teacher in Prince William County Public Schools teaching 3rd grade. In 2008, she continued her teaching career in Prince George’s County.
After starting her career as an educator, in 2013, Miriam obtained her Master’s of Arts Degree in Counseling from Trinity University of DC. During her years as a school counselor, she became very aware of the major gaps in students' growth performance and wanted to help make a change. She took on several leadership roles such as mentoring new teachers; developing and presenting parent seminars focusing on student mental health and their academics; leading several professional developments for teachers that focused on student growth and performance; meeting students social-emotional needs; as well as focusing on topics that discussed how to “teach” the whole child.
Having the opportunity to take on several leadership roles, Miriam felt in order to help student and teacher growth, she must grow as an educator and be fully prepared to help the student, the educator, and the parent. In 2018, She received her Administrator 1 Certification and Educational Specialist Degree from The George Washington University, in DC.
