Empowering students with language-based learning differences
Alexandra (Ally) Greenzaid, Art Teacher, received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking with a minor in Illustration from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). While at MICA, Ally received the Creative Visionary Award and was also the president of the printmaking club. Her work has been on display at a number of galleries and juried art exhibitions. She has experience coordinating and curating art shows as well. Her work has appeared in several publications, including a 2018 edition of Artist Magazine. Aside from art, Ally also has experience working with children and teens with learning differences through Friendship Circle, where she served as a volunteer and board member. She also worked as a counselor for before and after care at Kids After Hours for two years prior to coming to The Siena School. She has a passion for teaching art and working with children.
Why I Teach At Siena: I believe every student deserves to reach their full potential and, in doing so, it is important to have teachers who support their students in any way they can. My goal is to encourage students to use art as a creative outlet and as a means to express themselves.
