Borna Teachers and Staff
After completing her bachelor’s degree in chemistry, Dalileh refocused her passion for learning to a passion for teaching. In Iran, she devoted many years of her academic life to teaching high school level Chemistry. She soon realized that her love for teaching was rooted, not in the mere mechanics of memorization, but in the love of the learning process and problem solving at its most basic level. Dalileh expanded her passion for teaching to include early childhood education when she moved to the United States where she became involved in teaching at the primary education level at several Bay Area Farsi schools. She also has experience working within the Albany school district. Dalileh’s drive for learning and her desire for academic excellence has prompted her to return to the halls of academia to pursue a Master’s degree in Chemistry with a new cultural perspective and in a new language.

Delaram holds a B.S. degree in law from Kashan University and currently, pursuing a degree in political science at UC Davis. She became a teacher for a very simple reason, "to make a difference". While there are many fields in which she could accomplish this goal, she feels that education is the one in which she can have the greatest impact. Every day, children around the world are being told that they aren‘t good enough, or that they just "can’t". Delaram believes as a teacher, she would have a positive platform from which to dispel that fallacy. She strongly believes teaching is a profession that can be very exhausting, but realizes the benefits outweigh the fatigue ten times over. Teaching requires patience, understanding, compassion and enthusiasm - all that she is more than willing to provide her students at Borna on a daily basis. Delaram joined Borna Farsi School in 2015.
