Eloise Charlambides, Staff Writer

It wasn’t hard to choose a teacher for May’s edition of the Teacher Feature, as Ms. Milian is hardworking and loved in our community. Ms. Milian teaches Spanish and shows great passion for helping students appreciate Spanish culture. She is a very compassionate, loving, and bright teacher that takes pride in what she does. 

“Growing up, I always had different careers in mind. I wanted to be an archeologist, marine biologist, entrepreneur, and so much more,” Ms. Milian said. “Ultimately, teaching won me over due to me loving working with kids, especially in middle school. I wanted to express my love for Spanish culture and languages, and I found myself loving teaching kids like yourself.” 

Students love how she teaches and how she expresses her love for Spanish culture. She is down to earth and kind. 

“Ms. Milian is my favorite teacher because she is funny, caring, and good at what she does. She’s taught me in a way many haven’t and really deepened my love for Spanish culture,” Anita Bruzzi said.

Many agree that Ms.Milian knows how to interact with kids. 

“I would describe Ms.Milian’s teaching as amazing. No other words are needed because she is great at teaching and helping others learn about Spanish foods, culture, dances, ect..,”-Sydney Solomon.

Milian includes Spanish fiestas, dancing, nouns, verbs, and Spanish traditions in her curriculum. She also teaches basic Spanish and things like the human body parts, sports, colors, and clothing. 

“I love Ms.Milian because she’s very caring and nice. For example, she donated her hair at the walk for purpose and contributed to helping kids with no hair,” Jaylynn Belton said. “She also wants all her students to succeed in her class and show their true values not only as a student but as a person.”

Ms.Milian has been at Miami Country Day school for two years and is already taking over the language arts. Next year she will teach French, Portuguese, and Spanish.

“I hope at the end of the year every student I teach is able to feel like they can use Spanish in everyday situations, leave their shell, be able to express themselves, and feel like they fit in our everyday Spanish growing community.
