Gena Ezzi

I met Gena Ezzi almost ten years ago while she was still attending college. She has always been a dedicated and tireless worker constantly having several jobs to put herself through school so that she could eventually give back in the selfless profession of teaching. She is one of the most inspirational art educators that I have ever seen often giving her time to her students before and after school so that they may have an outlet for all of the emotional baggage that comes with being a child in today's world. She is not just one of those teachers that comes in and "puts in her time" but often goes above and beyond making sure that her art program is well-rounded and that the students can be successful in whatever they wish to pursue. She spends a large portion of her paycheck so that students can have everything that they need and volunteers her time at summer camps for students to continue their artistic journey. Gena is unique in that she not only is dedicated at her school and students but also her professional community volunteering to be President of the Hillsborough Arts Education Association and giving back to her peers that also work so very hard. She organizes a large Fine Arts Festival for every student in the Hillsborough district and an Art Banquet to honor all of those dedicated professionals. She helps with her school's musicals giving extra time to the backdrops and set designs. She is loving caring and extremely hard working.
