Talibah Daniel‘s higher-education experiences began in legal studies and research before she decided to transition to the area of education at the New York City Department of Education.
Talibah’s school-level roles included classroom teacher, Assistant Principal, and Principal. In these positions, she had opportunities to complete the following: create instructional-partnership programs, help execute a school redesign, help facilitate the implementation of the New York City Performance ELA Standards, lead a model site for performance learning and assessment, and become a co-founding administrator of one of New York City’s specialized high schools.
Licensed in curriculum and instruction, Talibah decided to take experiences with instructional designs to the school district leadership level. For over eighteen years, she held the following positions: Regional Instructional Supervisor for 35 high schools in Brooklyn, Sr. Executive Director for School Improvement for a Community Learning Support Organization with a portfolio of 132 schools, and Educational Admin Officer for a High School Superintendency for 40 high schools.
These positions afforded Taibah opportunities to work with over two hundred (200) middle and high school principals in schools in all five boroughs of New York City. Principals were supported with school improvement, curriculum and instruction, and professional learning workshops. Official Quality Reviews were also conducted to provide school communities with evaluative reports to support teaching and learning.
Michelle Obama stated, “Education is the single most important civil rights issue we face today.” Talibah welcomes the opportunity to continue supporting future progressive school leaders on missions to advocate for the civil rights of children in public education.
