Brandy Miranda

2022 | Parent | Lifetime Member

Trying to summarize in one paragraph Ms. Miranda’s roles on the PTA and service in the Flower Mound community for the last 14 years would be a disservice to her and her accomplishments. Brandy has generously given of her time and talents and filled many roles in LISD spanning from BES to Downing through Marcus to come full circle back to BES to do it all again! Ms. Miranda serves in her official capacity to BES as council delegate, room parent for her two children’s classes, and is the 5th-grade room level lead parent. Unofficially, she is lovingly referred to as our local social coordinator for many grade levels: Always planning a holiday party, play dates, MNO, or End of year parties. Her out-of-the-box thinking and advocacy to embrace and engage families inspired her to start the grade level group me’s that have become an essential tool for Bridlewood parents to really dive in and empower themselves to get involved. When Brandy is not hosting a new family meet-up, you can find her also championing the role of President of her neighborhood association. She also carries the honor of being the team representative at Cheer Athletics for her daughter’s cheer team and is this year’s sponsor chair for the Bridlewood Torpedoes swim team.
