Educators & Staff

Our Educators – The perfect team

New World Learning Academy Educators recognize the importance of instilling the excitement that comes when children learn new things. Some of the things that lead to academic success comes from experiences we give to children and the guidance we provide in that setting. Our hands on approach stimulates that quest for learning new things. We encourage and support a close bond between staff, parents, and children.

Mrs. Tracie Younce-Director

I am honored and excited to provide Chandler with an early education academy in which a highly academic and individualized curriculum is taught in an exciting learning environment; one that incorporates S.T.E.M. from a very early age and provides a solid foundation for success for a lifetime. My background is as an accelerated Pre-K teacher. An education without a ceiling has always been my wish and driving force for every child in America. With the United States falling behind in Science, Math and Technology, we at New World Learning Academy believe a strong early foundation will excite children to engage in these areas and change the statistics one child at a time.

Mrs. Deborah Eierdam - Preschool Educator

I have spent the majority of my career working with children of all ages. In addition to homeschooling my children, I have been a Girl Scout Leader for over 15 years and a Den mother for 5 years. I have an Associates degree in accounting. I made the decision to Home-school my children up to High School age. At which time, they attended a school focused on not only education but encouraging strong independent adults with a good foundation of morals and respect. I am so excited to be working with Tracie. I want to help these kids excel and find joy in learning!

Mrs. Marsha Anders - Preschool Educator

I am so thrilled to be a part of New World Learning Academy! I am eager to get to know each and every one of you, as we go through the amazing journey of preschool together. I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a degree in Accounting, but have spent 8 years serving in education and helping in childcare environments. I chose to place Accounting and Finance in the background because I love working with children and enjoy seeing them succeed. I believe student's should know that it is okay to make mistakes because that is how we learn. I like for the the students to participate in class discussions and learn from one another. We need to be respectful to each other and always try our best. I am excited to see what this school year has in store for us!

Mrs. Michelle Berretta - Assistant Director & Reading Specialist

I am excited to be a part of Tracie’s vision for early S.T.E.M. education. I am a graduate of Arizona State University with a degree in Advertising and Marketing. I have worked at a private school with Preschoolers and Kindergartners for the last 8 years. I feel we underestimate what children this age are capable of doing. If we offer them challenges, then with some help, they can achieve their full potential.

Ms. Jenn Hall - Pre-K and Specials Educator

My heart has always been in the education of children. I was a teacher’s aide for over 5 years. I held various jobs which included working with autistic children and Hispanic youth learning English. For the last four years, I have been blessed with being a Girl Scout Leader. I also enjoyed the program for 10 years as a child. Through Girl Scouts, I have learned to be strong and have fun every chance I get. Learning and discovering Adventures has always been a passion for me. I am excited to bring children of all ages to join me on that journey. I am so excited to be involved with Tracie and the staff at New World Learning Academy. Their vision is fresh and new, where each child can grow in an environment with no boundaries.

Mr. Walker Kyle - STEM Summer Camp Instructor

I am proud to be a part of New World Learning Academy this summer!

I have taught school for the last ten years with focus in special education and S.T.E.M. I also hold a BCBA in Autism and Behavior Conflict. It is my desire and passion to see every student succeed, with this in mind success is measured on an individual base not as a group.
