Jackie Sullivan
Pre-Kindergarten Teacher

Hi, my name is Jacqueline Sullivan, and I live right here in Anthem. I’m originally from the UK, and with my family we moved to sunny Las Vegas/Henderson in January 2002. I have three beautiful children, my eldest daughter is a 1st lieutenant in the army, my son is at Cal Poly Pomona and my youngest daughter is a senior at Coronado High School. I have worked in the Early Childhood field for fifteen plus years as an assistant and as lead teacher working with infants through to kindergarten and have loved working with every age group. I look forward to working and getting to know your children as well as parents, grandparents, and caregivers. If at any time you have questions about myself or the program, please ask I’m happy to answer your questions. Oh, one word of warning your children might come home saying things with a British accent!

Tamara Comandatore
Teacher’s Assistant

I have been working at New Song Christian Academy since 2012 as the teacher’s aide in the 3-year-old class and the 4-year-old class. I grew up in Southern California and have been a resident of the Anthem community with my husband and our daughter since 2003. I hold a degree in General Studies from Moorpark College Ca. I had always been actively involved in my daughter’s schools from being the room parent to PTA. I had also been a soccer mom for 13 years and the team manager for my daughter’s competitive soccer club. I enjoy my free time with my family and our pets. It’s a wonderful feeling to have that connection with the kids and families. I love setting a good foundation that will prepare them for kindergarten and most of all they leave New Song with the love of learning!

Wendy Denter
Pre-Kindergarten Teacher

Teaching young children is my passion and I feel so fortunate to get to do what I love every day and to work at such an amazing school! I have been teaching at New Song Christian Academy since 2016, and I am looking forward to the start of another wonderful year at New Song! My teaching career began at Good Samaritan Christian Academy in Las Vegas. What I enjoy most about working with this age group is their enthusiasm for learning and their boundless imagination. I am so blessed to have two amazing young adult children; Megan and Brandon, a wonderful husband; Adam and the cutest little fur baby; Teddy. We have lived in Henderson since July 2007. I love spending time with my family playing board games, camping, hiking, swimming, and enjoying backyard barbecues. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to work with your children and to get to know your families this school year!

Monica Aldana
Pre-K Teacher’s Aide

I am very excited to work with the Junior Kindergarten class and become a new member of the New Song Christian Academy. I was born and raised in Ecuador and moved to the United States in 2005. My husband, Jose, is retired Air Force. In 2013, God blessed us with a beautiful daughter, Alina. I studied computer science in Ecuador and international languages after moving to Las Vegas. I worked with the Clark County School District as a teacher assistant for kindergarten. I look forward to meeting you and your children.

Hope Manley
Academy Director

My professional training and experience have given me the tools necessary to create an enriching learning environment and provide active learning opportunities for students. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I then continued my studies at UNLV and earned my master’s degree in Education, with an emphasis in Special Education. I have worked in the field of early childhood education for 16 years. My wonderful family and I moved to the Anthem area of Henderson in 2006 and we absolutely love this community! I am so blessed to have this opportunity to be a partner with you in teaching and nurturing your child in a positive, inviting Christ-centered environment.

Birgit Drowanowski
Kindergarten Teacher

I am Birgit Drowanowski and I have been teaching here at NSCA for 11 years. I have 17 years of teaching experience. I am a German native and have taught Kindergarten prior to my move to the USA in the late 90’s. I obtained my teaching degree from Germany as well as an early childhood education degree from the USA and have an associate degree in Psychology. I love teaching Kindergarten! I create and offer an enriching learning environment with active learning opportunities for my students. Young children are eager to learn, explore, experience, and witness new things. Seeing that smile and connection when I help a child learn something new and setting a strong foundation that prepares them for first grade is very rewarding. In my off time I like to spend time with my daughters and our many rescue pets.

Xenia Gulati
Teacher’s Assistant

I am so excited to become a new member of New Song Christian Academy as a teacher’s assistant for the 3-year-old class. I was born and raised in El Salvador and moved to California in 1998. I moved to Las Vegas with my family in 2016. My 8-year-old daughter was a preschool student at New Song Christian Academy, and I was actively involved as a volunteer where I found out that I love working with children. I’m very fortunate to have this opportunity to work and be part of our New Song school community.

Tina Cook
Teacher’s Assistant

I am Tina Cook. My husband and I have been married since 2008 and have 2 boys and 1 girl. I graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a degree in Business management, administration, and a minor in photography. Before joining New Song Christian Academy, I was a stay-at-home mom for almost 13 years. During that time, I was actively involved in volunteering in our church nursery on Sundays, teaching Sunday school for the 3-year-old class, and leading the Puggles (age 2 and 3) in AWANA. Can you tell my favorite age group to work with? I am excited to see their eyes sparkle when they learn new things, being active with them when they sing songs, and being overly dramatic when we read books together. I loved seeing how New Song Staff treated my youngest when she attended and am blessed to be part of this amazing community in teaching your child/children.

New Song Christian Academy is a faith-based school offering top notch academics in a loving, nurturing environment.
