Dr. Daley, founder of Empowering Leaders of Tomorrow (ELOT), "I love children! I enjoy watching the excitement in their eyes as they listen to a story. Whether it's in a classroom with their peers or one-on-one with a parent or adult, the chance to stimulate their minds and create opportunities for conversations to make connections to a story is priceless!"

Every story has a teachable moment. As an author and an educator, Dr. Daley always attempts to find the hidden treasure in every situation to locate teachable moments. She writes children's books to stimulate interest and further adventurous thoughts. She believes that books should not just tell a story; they should allow the child to reflect on their experiences, make creative connections, and learn from them.

Dr. Daley is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.
