Ms. Silvy Mir
I have been at Mathews for fourteen years and sixteen years with Plano ISD. I grew up and went to school in many different countries, but have called Plano my home for the past 31 years.
I have Bachelor’s Degrees in Economics, and Psychology from Kinnaird College and a Master’s Degree in Business from Webster University in The Netherlands.
My road to teaching began when my oldest child started school in Plano. I was an active volunteer, and substitute in Plano ISD. I ultimately decided to get my Teaching Certification, as I love children, believe in Plano ISD and I cannot imagine any other career that is more meaningful to me.
My oldest daughter is 26 and graduated with a Master’s Degree from Washington University, and got married this Spring! My middle child is also a daughter who is 24. She graduated with a dual BA in Finance and Economics, and is working in the “real” world! My baby is a 21 year old son currently at UTD. We also have a cat, Tina who thinks we are her pets! All of my children attended Plano ISD schools from Kindergarten through 12th Grade. My son also attended Mathews.
I love living in Plano, and like to walk, bike, cook and read in my free time. I enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures, and people. This past summer I was fortunate enough to cross off a few items from my Bucket list, and visited Iceland, and Europe.
Mathews is my second home, and I love being part of our dynamic family! I’m excited about a new school year and learning about my new family members!
