Miriam Romero received the Arizona English Language Teacher of the Year Award at the Arizona Department of Education’s Office of English Language Acquisition Services 2018 Conference, held Dec. 5 at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort. Romero is a teacher at Carrillo K-5 Magnet School in the Tucson Unified School District. She received dual degrees from the University of Arizona in 2007: a Bachelor of Arts in education concentrated in bilingual education as well as a Bachelor of Arts concentrated in Spanish and Portuguese literature. Romero says one of the enduring lessons she learned from her maternal grandparents, Edna and Ben Feldman, comes from the Talmud, “The end result of wisdom is … good deeds,” which inspires her to engage her students and their families in her classroom, encouraging student-led inquiry and learning.
