Miranda studied Dutch in Tilburg and Nijmegen before starting her fulltme teaching career in 2000. In 2002 she decided to move to Houston, Texas to work at a large international school. In addition to teaching Dutch, she also became the Deputy Head of Middle School and coached football and track and field. In Houston she also organized the annual camping trip to Big Bend National Park for the eight grade class.

Miranda has been teaching IB Dutch A since 2002 and has been an IB-examiner since 2008. In 2009 she became the Examiner Responsible for Dutch B, setting the exams for 2011-2019. In addition to these IB-roles, Miranda led workshops for IB, developed the teacher support material for IB Dutch Ab Initio and currently is the External Advisor for MYP Dutch A.
