Daniel Aulbach Sidibe

Daniel earned a joint Master of Arts/Bachelor of Arts in Early Modern European History from Boston College (cum laude). He was able to complete two degrees in four years due to earning 24 Advanced Placement credits while attending high school on Long Island where he was raised. After graduation, Daniel was accepted to New York University where he completed his second Master’s in Atlantic World History with a minor in Latin American History. In June of 2002, Daniel was accepted into the New York City Teaching Fellows Program and earned a Master of Science in Curriculum and Teaching from Fordham University. Prior to teaching Daniel worked as a junior cataloguer for the Latin American Paintings and Sculpture Department at Sotheby’s, Inc. and as a sales administrator in the Global Wealth Management Division, Latin America – Merrill Lynch. For the past 20 years, Daniel has worked to make a difference for young people in some of New York City’s most challenging school environments. Daniel’s singular goal has been to cultivate the minds of his students while helping them to develop into well-rounded, responsible adults ready for the rigors of the 21st Century World. Where Daniel’s guiding philosophy is concerned, it is his resolute opinion that the concept of education is not based solely on academics, but on the development of emotional and social attributes of the learner as well. Teachers should be facilitators with the goal of helping students traverse the complex system that is learning, not just by passively imparting knowledge, but by providing a space where the voice and choice of the student are heard and reified. Daniel teaches through the lens of developing the skills and habits of lifelong learners who can grapple with the challenges of university-level coursework and beyond.
