Degrees and Certifications:
Dr. Dianne Berendzen, Ed. D.
After serving as a teacher and instructional coach in SLPS for 24 years, I have the privilege of serving as the Assistant Principal at Nahed Chapman New American Academy. I am both humbled and inspired every day working with the students at NCNAA,
I love learning and am committed to continuous growth. My credentials include a Master of Arts in Teaching from Webster University and a Doctorate in Teacher Leadership from Maryville University. I also possess certifications in elementary education, reading, and school administration.
My husband and I enjoy traveling to new places and engaging in outdoor activities. We also enjoy spending time with our two grown children and their families.
I believe that each of our students has unique potential that must be tapped. I set the bar high for myself and push others to achieve at higher levels, with support and encouragement. As a school leader, I strive to ensure that all students are treated equitably so that they can receive the best education they deserve.
