Although, years ago, she imagined herself destined for a career in the medical field, an internship in a school brought Ms. Farzayee an unexpected, deeper sense of purpose and fulfillment. “I would sit and absorb colors and experiences, as if I had entered a different world,” she says, thinking about that time. It set her on a new path.
At Green Hedges, Ms. Farzayee has found a home for her talents and interests. It is a place she describes as “hidden away with trees and nature, and with a warm, nurturing community.” As she implements the traditional components of the Extended Day program and provides additional academic resources to students and teachers, Ms. Farzayee uses her creativity and passion for learning in a way that takes root in the lives of her students. “I want them to teach themselves,” she says of her educational philosophy,” adding, “I give them the tools.”
A native of Port Washington, New York, Ms. Farzayee grew up in Northern Virginia, where she lives with her husband and two sons. She holds a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Mary Washington, and is completing coursework toward a Certificate in Education Management and Leadership from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
