About Me

Maestra Bilingüe-Activist

#BrooklynCollegeAlum|#TeachersCollege #Columbia #GradStudent

¡Hola! I’m Dalila 🙂
For the past four years, I have been a bilingual teacher activist teaching from an anti-racist 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 am currently enrolled in The University of Minnesota’s Integrative Health and Medicine Specialization learning about integrative therapies (ie. energy based, mind and body based, whole systems), healing practices, guided imagery, herbal medicine and aromatherapies.
I highly recommend checking out their website by clicking here. Being that there are so many Health Coaches emerging, we must be wary of entering programs that are not accredited. NBHWC’s website helps you find accredited programs through public universities and private programs. I am not 100% sure I want to become a health coach, but I am enjoying learning!
I aim to share parts of my journey with each recipe, social justice+anti-racist, health and fitness post, 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 am completing my journey at Teachers College, Columbia University with a M.A. in International Educational Development and a concentration in Bilingual/Bicultural studies (literally a few months until I finish). I am also about to embark in my fifth year as a teacher-activist who will teach 4th and 5th Grade Dual Language, at a public school located in Brooklyn, NY.
