January 28, 1934 - July 4, 2013
Glenna Claire Biviano, a life-long educator in music, English, and the performing arts, passed away Thursday July 4, 2013 at the age of 79. Glenna was born on January 28, 1934 in Indiana to Clarence Martin and Naomi Norris and was one of two children. She is survived by her son David, daughter Melissa, sister Gloria Stern, and granddaughter Naomi.
After finishing high school, Glenna went to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts where she received her first bachelor’s degree in 1952. After that she attended the Indiana University School of Drama, the Jordan Conservatory of Music’s drama department, and the Malcom School of Music. In 1984 she went to Pace University in Briarcliff New York and received Bachelor of Science degree. Then, after returning to school a third time in 1993, she received her Master’s in Education from Pace University in White Plains, New York.
During the mid-1980’s Glenna created and directed The Little Community Theater, a youth summer program in which children and teenagers were introduced to the world of theater. Performances included The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Oliver and many more. In addition, Glenna gave private music lessons for piano, guitar, accordion, and violin to students out of her home for more than twenty years.
Glenna promoted the concept of furthering one’s own education and stressed the importance of being educated. From 1985 to 2010 she worked for the New York City Department of Education and was an English teacher at Theodore Roosevelt High School located on Fordham Road in the Bronx. Throughout her career as a school teacher, she made sure that both of her children went on to get college degrees and laid the foundation for her granddaughter’s future education.
