Teacher Spotlight: 

My name is Sulman Nedeyda Miranda. I am from El Negrito, Honduras, which is located in Central America. I graduated in 1994 from "Ecole Normale de Senoritas", as a primary school teacher. After becoming a primary school teacher, I attended the University Nacional Autonoma de Honduras. I received my degree in Journalism. I have been teaching for almost 20 years in primary education.

I chose to be a teacher, so that I can experience the joy of making a difference in the lives of my students. I enjoy seeing my students progress, and I enjoy my part in shaping their future. I also enjoy helping them discover the world around them. Education is the pillar of society and children are apart of it.
