As the first day of our inaugural school year approaches, we're thrilled to unveil to you the team that will make up the founding faculty and staff of BASIS Independent Manhattan. We're pleased to introduce to you Dylan Glanzer, Kindergarten Music Teacher and Kindergarten Teaching Fellow.

Dylan GlanzerMs. Glanzer is extremely proud to be the Kindergarten Music Teacher and Kindergarten Teaching Fellow at BASIS Independent Manhattan. Her goal as an educator is to create an atmosphere of mutual respect in the classroom so that children feel empowered to ask questions and seek answers. Says Ms. Glanzer, “I believe that if children are excited, inspired, and engaged in what they are doing, they will find joy in learning.”

Ms. Glanzer chose to join our school community because we are focused on raising the bar for all students and inspiring students to have a better understanding of the world beyond our own borders.

Ms. Glanzer has a Bachelor’s degree from Syracuse University and a Master’s degree in Teaching from Montclair State University. She is also the owner and creator of “Parties by Miss Dylan & Company” for which she provides musical entertainment for young children. She has produced and recorded two children’s albums, “Sing Along with Miss Dylan” and “Roller Coaster Ride.” The latter CD won a 2013 Parent’s Choice Approved Award. Ms. Glanzer has been married for 23 years and has two children, ages 17 and 20.
