She created and marketed a series of children’s toys called, “My Art Start…It Makes Me Smart”, a product that promoted early learning through art-making.

She was the Director of an NEH Master Teacher Learning Institute, a Director of Learning and Teaching, has lectured on Cable Television, and was honored in Who’s Who in Education. She authored a professional newspaper column as a contributing writer and taught at Rutgers University Graduate School of Education. Dr. Seiden is dually licensed in Special Education and Art Education and is certified from the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
