Our Principal

Mrs. Tabitha Miller

Dear Families,

Welcome to the home of the Quetzales! Please browse our website for more information about the dual-immersion program at Gabriela Mistral Elementary School. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Our talented teachers and staff are dedicated to offering our students a top-notch education in Spanish and English, while supporting and challenging every student in their academics and social-emotional learning. Our community is unique in its diversity and at Mistral, we embrace this diversity. We are delighted to work with you every step of the way and we appreciate your support.

I have worked in language education for thirteen years. I am originally from southern Virginia, where I learned Spanish in school and became fluent during a summer immersion program. I continued studying Spanish at Virginia Tech, where I earned a Bachelor’s degree. I later earned a Master’s in Spanish-American literature and linguistics at Florida State University. I earned my administration credential from Queens University of Charlotte and was a two-time Charlotte Teachers Institute fellow at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

I am a frequent professional development developer and presenter, coach, mentor, and published author, with extensive experience in Personalized Learning, technology integration, and dual-immersion education. My personal and professional mission is ensuring that every student has access to every opportunity for success. In my free time, I enjoy textile arts, reading, cooking, traveling, and singing with my husband, Paul. 

Please read my summer Qué bulletin below to learn more.

In the spirit of collaboration, compassion, consistency, and communication,

Sra. Tabitha Miller
