Mirabela was born and raised in Deva, Romania and she immigrated to the United States at the age of 26. She quickly fell in love with this beautiful country, its people, and the ideas that it was founded upon. She has had a love for teaching since a young age, she was always having friends over to help them with their homework, or making her brother play school with her.
Her high school program had emphasis in math, physics and French, giving her the qualifications needed to teach French while attending college. Bela got her bachelor’s degree in business management with emphasis in tourism’s economy and international trading, becoming a state licensed economist.
For the past 16 years, she was privileged to spend most of her time serving in the Young Women organization for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This allowed her to really learn how to communicate with the youth and helped her develop a strong love for them. She appreciates their energy, unique traits and sense of humor and she absolutely loves being among them.
Mirabela has spent the last few years volunteering at her kids’ schools and her favorite has been being a math substitute teacher for middle school and high school students. She finds it very satisfying to see the look on their faces once they understand a concept and realize that math doesn’t have to be hard.
She has two children attending American Heritage and she is looking forward to being a part of such a wonderful organization.
