Name: Bintu Kabba
Bintu has 15 years of teaching experience with elementary youth from ages three years old to middle school. Bintu began her teaching career assistant-teaching in D.C. charter schools, then moved onto Montessori, and after college spent several years as a youth coordinator for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and as a Young Adult coordinator for the Epilepsy Foundation of Eastern Pennsylvania. Over the last two years her greatest joy has been teaching Kindergarten in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at an urban charter school. Bintu also has experience developing youth curriculum, and enhancing out of school time programming (after school activities). She has volunteered several times with various NGO’s in Accra, Ghana and has a special interest in youth education internationally and hopes that her experiences will enhance the lives of children globally.
She holds a BS in Psychology from Howard University in Washington, DC, and an MA in Public Administration from the University of Phoenix.
As a Kindergarten educator, she believes that students are best served when they are immersed in a culturally inclusive classroom side by side with culturally responsive teaching practices. Students should be able to have more input in their learning environment and educators should build positive relationships with families and the communities they serve.
Outside of work, Bintu loves to travel and learn about different cultures. She enjoys finding new and delicious restaurants around the world, fashion, and has been writing and publishing books for members in her community for years . You will often hear her refer to her brother Manju, who inspires her to be great and limitless after his sudden passing in 2018 at the age of 23. She appreciates life and does not take any of it for granted.
