An interesting fact about Daniela’s journey is that the first school that she attended in the United States was Beacon Heights which is the school that she proudly serves today. She received her education from elementary to high school in Prince George’s County. She will be graduating from the University of Phoenix on June 30th with a Bachelor of Science in Communication with a Cultural Studies and Communication Certificate. Despite the expectations in her job description Mrs. Perez is recognized for the many hats that she wears. She is passionate about Girl Empowerment and has started an after school program called Empowering Young Girls @ the Heights. She hosts English Classes at our local church and facilitates many workshops to advise and train parents on the understanding of the educational system so they can become better advocates for their children’s education.

Daniela is also a member of the Increase Family and Community Engagement (IFCE) Strategy Team.
