Brandi Aaronson & Miriam Pissas
Welcome! My name is Miriam Pissas and I have been teaching for 15 years and I am very excited to get to know all of you! At home, we speak both Spanish and Portuguese. I am from Mexico and my husband is from Brazil. We have twin boys that are attending middle school this year. On our free time we like to hike and watch comedy movies.
My co-teacher is Brandi Aaronson. She has been working at Desert Willow for the past 5 years. She is from California and has been teaching for 9 years. She has a son who also attends DWES. Brandi’s enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She loves to garden, hike and coach after-school sports.
This school year we will create, learn, play and have fun while learning Spanish. Thank you for entrusting your children to us. We are looking forward to an amazing year!
