About Me

Welcome to my teacher website!

My name is Miriam Otero and I am the resource specialist teacher at LCE. This is my ninth year teaching students with special needs and my fourth year working for LCUSD.

I started my teaching career as a 2012 Teach for America corps member serving in a low-income community. I also have experience teaching with the District of Columbia Public Schools and Los Angeles Unified School District. Over the course of my career, I have earned a master's degree in Special Education from Loyola Marymount University and a Master's in Education from Columbia University.

In my spare time, I like to read, watch shows, bake, and spend time with my family. I am a fan of the Dodgers, LAFC, and Lakers. I love pizza, doughnuts, chocolate, and dogs.

I am very excited to see all students in person and more importantly, I am looking forward to helping all students succeed socially, emotionally, and academically.

If you have any questions throughout the year, please feel free to email me at
