Meet our Teaching Fellows

Daniela Benkirane is currently a Teaching Fellow in our Spanish Department working closely with 9th and 12th-grade students. Danny, who previously taught pre-school aged children in Mexico, is training through our fellowship to become a lead high school teacher.

When asked about her experience so far, she shared: “Enseñar es muy gratificante, se me había olvidado lo gratificante que era porque lo hice por 4 años, y lo dejé por 4 años. Esta experiencia me reafirma que si es lo que quiero hacer.// Teaching is very rewarding, I had forgotten how rewarding it was because I did it for 4 years, and I quit for 4 years. This experience has reaffirmed that it’s what I want to do. “
