Educational Consultant – Maestra Bilingüe-Activist
¡Hola! I’m Dalila 🙂
For the past eight years, I have been an educator. Although, for the past six years I have been bilingual teacher activist teaching from an anti-racist and liberatory lens, teaching about mindfulness and holistic social emotional wellness through restorative justice practices. Being their guide to their own inner light has helped me realize how much I want to dedicate to my own wellness journey, and even more–continue to help others in and outside the classroom.
The world is our classroom/El mundo es nuestra clase
I aim to share parts of my journey with each #recipe, #socialjustice & #anti-racist, #health and #fitness posts, so that we can work as a collective for community healing. I look forward to healing together!
Background: I hold a B.A. Degree in Bilingual Elementary Education Grades 1-6 with a concentration in Puerto Rican and Latino Studies from CUNY, Brooklyn College. I recently completed my M.A. Degree at Teachers College, Columbia University within International Educational Development and a concentration in Bilingual/Bicultural studies October 2020. I have worked in public education for the past six years and in private for two years before entering the public school system. I am currently an I.A.
