Born and raised in Tehran, Azam completed her higher education in Educational Technology. She began her educational activities focusing on early education, particularly, first graders. As a passionate educator, she worked over 20 years to adopt new and yet simple methods in using technology in education for both Parents and children.
With the intention of raising the public awareness of this new born field in Iran, she held various educational workshops for teachers and parents to demonstrate how using technology in education could have an impact on the learning process and that how it could lead to a higher quality of life in general, and education in specific.
After immigrating to the United States, she expanded her activities and invented new methods that would apply to Bilingual Farsi- English student's speakers s who had different educational needs than those in Iran.
Having no doubts about the parent's essential role in maintaining a mentally, physically, and emotionally environment for their children's well being, and becoming aware of the necessity of the existence of an appropriate, healthy, and effective communication between parents and their children she began doing an extensive research on how to create this bridge.
After a year, of hard work and research, she finally achieved her goal by developing an engaging method that has been carefully designed and will be used in her new MOMMY and ME classes. To pass on her years of experiences to the younger and new generation including parents, teachers, and her students who she compassionately loves.
Observing the reaction, needs, and the learning process among bilingual students who were learning Farsi as their second language and comparing it with the same age category students who live in Iran where Farsi is the first spoken language, Azam soon readied that in that to satisfy her bilingual students needs, there has to be a change in the teaching material in addition to the teaching method she had already developed. As a result, in order to increase the chances of a higher quality education for her Bilingual students, Azam began developing new materials includug a new book that she is in the final stage of completion.
Years ago in an underserved city of Banneh in Kurdistan side of Iran, an innocent discussion between a father and his young daughter who after the first chemistry class in high school knew that she had found her true passion but could not explore it any further due to the lack of a chemistry laboratory in the area resulted to a bigger movement that benefited all students in the area. That girl was Dalilah.
After two years of hard work and fighting against all the odds and limitations, Dalila’s father was able to stablish the first chemistry labs and later on Labs for all the talented yet underserved students in the city of Baneh. That day she promised her father that she would dedicate her life to chemistry and humanity.
Dalilah’s dream of pursuing her dream of teaching finally came true when she received her Baccalaureate degree in chemistry. As promised to her father, she began her career by teaching chemistry to underserved high school students in different parts of Kurdistan for over 12 years, during which she developed a reputation among colleagues and students for her rare ability of making complex subjects pleasant and simple enough for students to comprehend. This rare ability followed her all the way to a different part of the world. In 2005, she immigrated to the United States Where she received her bachelors's degree in Chemistry. After receiving her degree, she refocused her passion for learning to a passion for teaching and began teaching in various universities in the Bay Area. 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 in several Bay Area Farsi schools. Since that time, she has also spent time working within the public school system. Dalileh’s enthusiasm 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.
