He earned a Master of Business Administration from Indiana University and a Master of Science from the Division of Administration, Policy and Urban Education from Fordham Graduate School of Education. He holds dual Bachelor of Science degrees in economics and marketing from Boston College.

“John has hands-on experience in many areas, including payroll, educational financial operations, transportation, grants and food services,” said Superintendent Kevin Walston. “As a seasoned veteran, he will immediately bring stability, planning and a steady hand to our district.”  

Miranda, a former Associate Dean of Campus Administration at Capital Community College in Hartford, has spent the last decade working in higher education. His previous experience includes managing and overseeing finance operations at the high school level. He has a master’s in business administration from the University of Phoenix and a bachelor’s degree in science from Central Connecticut State University. He has been accepted into the Doctorate in Education Leadership program at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.

“Eduardo will make a great addition to our cabinet not only for his expertise and experience, but also his clear communication style, and his passion and zeal for this position,” said Walston.
