If she's not digging in the garden, lost in a book or scribbling down ideas, Mia is likely teaching. She's passionate about education and creativity, because both are deeply human endeavors. Her first years as an educator were with Teach for America, serving as a teacher in marginalized school spaces. After studying International Education Development at University of Pennsylvania, Mia's had the honor of working with students from across Asia, teaching in Myanmar, Thailand, and Bangladesh. She currently works as the Program Lead Instructor at AEM-Parami and as a Writing Composition instructor at Parami University. Her work stems from the belief that students can and do shape a better future.
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” --Rainer Maria Rilke
