Tiffany Miera Receives Milken Educator Award

Tiffany strives to build the foundational math skills that her 5th graders need to succeed. Under her tutelage, Needham’s fifth graders have risen from 25.4% proficiency in 2019 to 42.9% in 2022, outperforming both the district and state.

In an interview with the Milken Educator team, Tiffany said “I teach because I love to see my kids grow and learn. When I see my students achieve, I'm so proud of them, because I know how hard they worked to get there."

Tiffany is a Durango native with strong community ties—she attended Needham herself, and has been teaching at Needham since 2008.
