Degrees and Certifications:
Dr. Dianne Berendzen, Ed. D.
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. I served as a teacher and an instructional coach in SLPS before moving to NCNAA as AP.
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, including two grandchildren. Miko, a rescue cat, recently joined our family.
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.
