Calendar of Event

Meet the SHADES Fair Garden Staff
Mrs. PJ Hoskins

My name is Miranda Navratil
I am from Maryville, TN
My education includes a BA in Global Studies and TESL/TEFL/TESOL certification, grammar specialization.
My experience includes Five plus years teaching in public and private Pre-K and elementary schools, one summer as a live-in camp counselor.
My skills and talents I want to share with children are second language skills: Spanish and American Sign Language/English grammar skills and hands-on games to foster fun learning experiences.
What inspires me to work with children is children’s excitement over learning and their ability to easily soak  up so much information quickly as a young learner
Other things of interest about me are I speak Spanish, as well as some ASL, Korean and Mandarin Chinese. I also lived abroad in South Korea and Taiwan for several years. I greatly value cultural diversity in regards to promoting personal growth and better achieving educational goals.
