Dania Cabello


Dania Cabello designs and facilitates learning experiences through play informed by critical thinking, self-reflection, empathy building, and practiced persistence by integrating her expertise in sports with liberatory pedagogy and inquiry-based design. She draws on ten years as an educator in Oakland Unified School District, 20 years as a sports coach, a former professional athlete and academic. She develops and curates to support inclusive and equitable sporting practices and experiences so as to reimagine sport as a space for liberation. Dania is interested in empowering others to see themselves as liberatory practitioners by building literacy, agency and capacity to address issues of race, class, gender and power through play.
