Zeba Ahmed, Principal
As a devoted mother of four, my greatest aspiration is to inspire and guide my children. I am dedicated to instilling in them the Islamic values and I want them to bring a positive change in our society.
I am a graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from a reputable institution in India. Seventeen years ago, my final year projects focused on Wi-Fi and artificial intelligence, and now I see how these fields have become central to the world’s advancements. I have had the privilege of working at esteemed organizations. Presently I am deeply honored to serve as the principal of Greenway Academy, where my goal is to create a nurturing Islamic learning environment and promote academic excellence among our students.

As an adventurous soul, I find joy in exploring the world, particularly when it involves water, traveling, and Nasheed (Islamic music). I am also a food enthusiast and love trying new cuisines from different cultures. But my greatest adventure is being a parent to my two wonderful children, Ranna and Salih. Together, we embark on journeys, eager to learn and experience new things. Every day, I strive to create meaningful memories for them and instill a love for knowledge and curiosity about the world. This journey of discovery with my children fills my heart with happiness and purpose.
I am a highly motivated professional with a strong educational background. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from Northern Arizona University and possess an Associate of Arts and General Education certification from Paradise Valley Community College. Furthermore, I have pursued my passion for early childhood education by completing over 18 units in the field. With more than two years of experience in teaching early childhood, I have developed a deep understanding of the needs and development of young learners. I am committed to creating a nurturing and stimulating environment that fosters growth and learning in each child I encounter.
