“Miriam was effective at developing a strong working relationship with her students.  They recognized that she was a valuable advocate for them and developed trust in her.  She was able to coax work from some of our most reluctant learners as a result of the strong relationships she built with them. She was also able to help parents navigate the complex paperwork associated with IEP (Individualized Education Programs) meetings as well as help them understand their children as learners.” - Former Principal of Massachusetts public school
