First Grade Teacher
At FSA since 1996
BA Arts (Art and Dance) – Bard College
Miriam this year is fulfilling a long-time desire to teach with Celest Samas in first grade, but she has served FSA in many capacities. FSA was Miriam’s first teaching job after graduating college. In addition to having taught classes in choreography, dance and many forms of art, she also has taught in FSA’s summer camp and aftercare. She has taught dance and art all over Atlanta from The Atlanta Union Mission to Colorwheel Art School in Decatur. Her favorite class project to date has been working with students to create a music video. She has also helped extensively to organize school musicals, talent shows and auction projects. Miriam loves that the FSA community is close knit, that they have always been interested and supportive of her ideas for classes and that there is always room to explore and grow as both a teacher and a student. All of her four children have attended FSA at some point in their educational careers.
