Delila Leber's kindergarten dual language classroom is a place of magic.
At the beginning of the year, young learners are cautious and nervous, but Delila guides them to become strong, independent, empowered learners. Her students enter her classroom at different levels in academics, school experience and social-emotional growth. They all leave at or above grade level and ready to tackle first grade.
Delila uses her voice, gestures, visuals, music and movement to help students build their Spanish vocabulary and learn content. She is a fierce advocate for students and families, with equity always at the center of her work.
These are just a few of the reasons why Delila is our Teacher of the Year. See what inspired Delila to become an educator.
