Daniela Anello, Head of School, leads the strategic vision, implementation, and growth of DC Bilingual both academically and operationally.

Daniela started with DC Bilingual in 2009 as a Literacy Coach and advanced into the roles of Resident Principal and Interim Principal before the school’s board of trustees named Daniela Head of School. Daniela launched her teaching career in the elementary school classrooms of New York, Boston, and Washington, DC.

To further involved herself, Daniela shares her time with a number of education-focused organizations: Member of the State Early Childhood Development Coordinating Council (SECDC), Board Member for the My School DC Common Lottery, Board Member for the National Charter Collaborative, Board Member for the DC Special Education Cooperative, and Board Member for the Friends of Tenley Library.
