Miranda Chaplin and family

How would your friends describe you?

My friends would describe me as a hard worker and positive supporter. Sometimes I get accused of being super mom.

If you had to choose a career outside of agriculture, what would it be?

I always thought if I would have pursued a career outside of agriculture, it would have been as an elementary school teacher. My passion for education and love of children took an unexpected twist as I recently excepted a position as a principal at a Catholic elementary school. 

What is your favorite meal?

My favorite meal to cook is my grandma‘s recipe of fried chicken, cream pan gravy, and country style green beans. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

By the ocean or in the mountains?

By the ocean. I get to carsick and feel claustrophobic by the mountains. 

What do you hope KALP Class XII accomplishes after graduation?

I hope my KALP class strengthens the alumni network and future classes seek career opportunities. I also hope we stay close and support each other personally and professionally after we graduate.
