Mirais GashClassroom Teacher

Northern Virginia Community College

Mirais Gash was born in Ashburn, Virginia, and was homeschooled all her school career. She attended HEARTS Homeschool Academy in middle school and high school, and then went on to study at Northern Virginia Community College, where she graduated with an associate’s degree in graphic design.

As Principal Graphic Designer for Van Essen Studio, Mirais is responsible for designing logos and other marketing materials as well as developing and designing websites for clients all over the DC metro area. Since 2018, Mirais expanded her horizons further by becoming the Social Media and Graphics manager for the City of Ranson, WV, where she was responsible for promoting local events and activities, designing marketing material and managing the city website.

During the 2018/2019 school year, Mirais served as the HEARTS Ambassador, responsible for the pre-admissions process of organizing and executing open house events. In addition, she has worked as a teaching assistant for HEARTS with responsibilities ranging from preparing classes to designing and grading papers and assignments.

After many enjoyable years of being homeschooled under excellent teachers, and as a culmination of her broad experience in Computer Skills and Graphic & Web Design, Mirais was inspired to share such positive experiences as a teacher herself. She is thrilled to teach with HSLDA this year. Besides her passion for graphic design, Mirais enjoys drawing, cooking, and spending time with her family.

She has been teaching with the Academy since 2018.
