TEAM

Our team is dedicated to designing for what humans need for growth and flourishing.

Andrew Collins

Founding School Director

I believe there is no better way to spend one’s life than to support the joyful flourishing of others. In addition to School Director for Phoenix Modern, I serve as the President & CEO of New Learning Ventures, our operating nonprofit corporation. In the last two decades, I have supported the design and launch of schools and learning experiences all over Arizona as a classroom teacher, educational entrepreneur, director, and guide. My greatest passions in life are to love others, imagine new opportunities, and inspire people to be their best selves. Under New Learning Ventures, I also support Acton Academy Phoenix, a micro-independent school and the Arizona Children’s Business Fair, a one-day event for aspiring young entrepreneurs in K-8th grade. I love living in Central Phoenix with my wife Alicia and our two daughters, Alina and Adeline.

Jessica Taylor

Founding Lead Guide/Middle School Guide

I often say that I began my career in education while running birthday parties at an ice cream shop in my college town. I discovered that kids are funny and creative- they are eternally optimistic- they have an endless supply of energy and enthusiasm. And so, in between games of Hot Potato and Simon Says and over mountains of sprinkles and whipped cream, I committed myself to working with children for the rest of my career. Since 2005, I have worked with children of all ages, ranging from preschoolers to undergrads, and have supported hundreds of new and aspiring educators across the Valley. I have completed advanced coursework in Developmental Psychology and have a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. I am an avid reader and researcher and believe that the learning environment can be as magical and joyful as a birthday party at an ice cream parlor (hopefully a little less sticky).

Charlie Kaplan

Founding Operations Director

I am from Chicago and I like to build things. From electric go-carts in my dorm room to hyper-targeted local advertising campaigns and scalable school systems. My journey in education started five years ago when moved out to Arizona to help build the highest performing high school in Maryvale. With a double major in Economics and Business Management along with a focus in Entrepreneurship from Purdue University, I am excited to be reimagining school with our Phoenix Modern team! I love the challenge of trying new things and exploring new places. When I am not checking items off of a checklist you can find me on a basketball court or out for a bike ride. If you see me riding my bike to work go ahead and honk as you pass by.

Brianna Spadafora

Co-School Director

Since childhood I have truly loved learning and communicating with others — from playing school with my twin brother and sister, and helping my mom in her own classroom, to exploring communications and sociology in my time at Penn State University. I found my way back to education when I moved to Phoenix in 2013 to teach 6th grade in Maryvale as a Teach For America corps member. In the years since, I have worked with learners in 1st through 6th grade in Maryvale and central Phoenix. My favorite subjects are science and mathematics, but I also love to read, write in my journal, create paintings, and go outside. I believe that humans thrive on connection and communication. Discussing, creating, laughing, and processing together expands our perspectives as we develop within ourselves the empathy we need to make our world great. I am incredibly excited to continue on my journey of lifelong learning, communicating, and perspective taking with the Phoenix Modern team.

Alison Stevenson

Co-School Director

I am originally from Oregon but New Orleans is my happy place. I started my educational career in New Orleans and worked there for seven years. I then spent a year working in Los Angeles before moving here to Phoenix, where I have been the last three years. I believe that all students deserve high quality education and educators. I have held many roles over my career including classroom teacher, mentor teacher, reading specialist, EL coordinator, and dean. I think having such a variety of different roles has helped me see how important it is that students are invested in their education. I am very excited to be working here at Phoenix Modern, where students are valued, and have choice throughout their school day. I am very honored and excited to get to be a part of the Phoenix Modern community.

kiara Johansen

Special Education Director

I am a desert girl with a cosmopolitan heart. With a Greek grandfather, a Panamanian mother, and a Danish last name, you could say my passion for global cultures is in my DNA. I am born and raised in the Valley and currently live in Phoenix with my wonderful parents, sister, and senior cat Stratus. I recently graduated from Arizona State University in 2021 as the Mary Lou Fulton’s Teacher’s College Outstanding Undergraduate with a degree in Special and Elementary education. Education has been my passion since childhood and I decided to become an educator at nine years old! I love to study international educational approaches and had an incredible opportunity in 2018 to study abroad in Reggio Emilia, Italy to study the Montessori and Reggio Emilia approaches. The authentic learning experiences I witnessed there and the learners I met truly changed my life and teaching philosophy forever. I just concluded my first-year teaching experience as a K-5 special education teacher and work to promote the values inclusion, diversity and creativity in the classroom community. Outside of the studio, you can find me perusing the aisles at Barnes and Noble, picking up succulents at the Home Depot, or purchasing some crafting supplies at Michaels. I am so excited to start this journey with Phoenix Modern this school year!

Allison Wear

Lead Foundations Guide

Working in the school system in some capacity has been my experience for the past 17 years. I started in public schools as an Early Childhood Special Educator after completing my post-baccalaureate in Early Childhood Education at Arizona State University in 2005. Wanting to weave my B.F.A. in Photography into my career, I took a pause from teaching in 2008 to pursue my graduate degree in Clinical Art Therapy at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. As a licensed family therapist, I worked in several settings in the LA area including outpatient psychiatric programs and therapeutic schools that contracted with LAUSD. Our family found ourselves in Arizona in 2018 and I resumed work in the public school setting; this time with a solid foundation in therapeutic and social emotional practices. Having seen my own child flourish in Phoenix Modern, I knew that this was exactly the type of school I wanted to become a part of. In the classroom, I enjoy weaving art, creativity, play and hands-on learning experiences into the learning process. Outside of the classroom you will find me reading, exploring fun and quirky places, working on my antique mall booth, seeking out vintage clothing, thrift shopping, grabbing coffee and most of all hanging out with my wonderful husband, daughter and our chihuahua, Frito.

McKaela Christensen

Art Specialist

Having grown up living in various places across the globe, I’ve embraced the wonders of diverse cultures and nurtured an insatiable passion for learning. College brought me to Arizona, where I explored subjects ranging from architecture to astrobiology to ornithology. The jobs I took leading up to graduating fueled my passion for teaching and sharing knowledge. I believe in creating magical learning environments, inspired by joy and motivated by the desire to see dreams become reality. Every child is an artist whether they believe it or not, and my goal is to help as many as possible realize the potential they have within themselves. Art remains my constant companion since childhood, with sketching and creative pursuits filling my free time. After all, I come from a family of artists and have been learning how to draw, paint, knit, and the like since before I could even say the words. Reading, writing, and wildlife photography are my weekend joys, but I love to challenge myself to learn new art styles and techniques whenever I can.

Quentin Siegal

Movement, Health & Wellness Specialist

Hello, my name is Mr. Q. I am from the Chicagoland area. I moved to Phoenix a year and a half ago in search of nice weather and new experiences. I am passionate about being an educator, and have been working in schools since 2015, and have had great success in my 7 seasons of coaching middle school soccer and basketball. I have great passion for the environment, sustainability, and nature. My previous Chicagoland school had a large emphasis on nature, and inspiring future generations to care about each other and the planet. In 2021, I received the ‘Those Who Excel Meritorious Award’ for Educational Service Personnel from the Illinois State Board of Education. In my free time, you will catch me camping with my fiance or cheering on my favorite football team the Bears (often disappointingly). I look forward to my role as our Health and Wellness Guide here at Phoenix Modern!

I am originally from Caguas, Puerto Rico but have been fortunate enough to travel and live all over Europe and the United States. This constant movement has shaped my perspective on education and what the path to a well-rounded education looks like, a path that has led me to join the Phoenix Modern team. I received my bachelor’s from Portland State University in Oregon and recently completed my Masters in Elementary Education. As a lifelong learner, I aspire to travel to every corner of the world and learn from as many people as possible. When I am not in the classroom you can find me enjoying time with my English Bull Terrier named Zeus, traveling, or at a concert. I also enjoy going to art museums and trying new restaurants.

Dionne Snively

Elementary Guide

My name is Mrs. Dionne, (like Celinè Dion), and I am delighted to be your guide this year. I can’t wait to spend the year with you. I was born and raised in Saint Louis, MO. Do you know where it is? Well, Saint Louis is the city with the big arch on the Missouri River and Mississippi River confluence or riverbank. It is best known as the Gateway to the West. Perhaps, that’s where I first found my love for the west. I have been a teacher for more than 15 years from private schools to public schools to even homeschooling. As I hold a Bachelors in Education from the University of Missouri- St. Louis. My family of 6, including 4 children and my husband, love to travel. Collectively, we have lived in every region of mainland U.S., excluding the Pacific Northwest. We have a puppy named Blu, who steals the show wherever he goes. Just watch your socks around him, he’s known to bury a pair or two outdoors! Maybe you’ll meet him one day! You will find that I love nature and the outdoors as well. I love incorporating nature into our daily math and reading lessons! Well that’s enough about me! I look forward to learning all the fascinating things about you!

I am from Chicago and had the desire to be an educator for as long as I can remember (and a pop/movie star but that ship might be sailing). Luckily I have been fulfilled teaching third and fourth grade the past four years and being involved in my previous school’s Drama Club. I graduated from Bradley University in 2017 with an Elementary Education K-9 degree and a concentration in Fine Arts. My previous Chicagoland school was part of the Green Schools National Network and there was a large focus on environmental sustainability, explorative learning, project and place-based learning, SEL, and how to better the world for future generations. There I received the Illinois State Board of Education’s Outstanding Early Career Educator Meritorious Service Award and in my first year of teaching, I received 93.9 Lite FM’s Salute Teachers Award. My favorite activities outside of school include theater, working out, and going camping. I am also a huge Disney lover! I am passionate about the environment and I am constantly educating myself on best teaching practices. I moved to Arizona recently for new experiences, adventures, and perspectives- and I am so happy that it led me to Phoenix Modern!

Learning Interventionist Guide

As a kid, my favorite game to play with my younger sister was “school”. I always had to be the teacher! It would be several years before I became an actual teacher with many job experiences between. In every position that I’ve held, there is an element of service. I have a heart for helping others and it is where I find my greatest joy. About 15 years ago, I began my journey as an educator. Since then, I’ve earned a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction with a minor in Reading, and an SEI endorsement. I’ve taught K-6, I was a curriculum coach for K-12, a Title I coordinator, and a reading interventionist. Outside of school, you’ll find me traveling with my husband and dog as often as possible. We love to explore new places together and stay physically active.

Foundations Guide

I knew I was going to be a educator from a very young age. There are many in the field of education in my extended family and I too felt the call to serve. I started my career shortly after graduating high school. By March 2000 I had found my first job in a preschool setting and began teaching with more traditional approaches. When my youngest son started kindergarten, I went back to school for my formal education. I attended Paradise Valley Community College for my associate’s degree and learned about the Reggio Emilia education project and my whole educational trajectory changed. I began trying out some of the practices I learned, attended professional development at PVCC, continued on to earn my bachelor’s & master’s degrees, and began facilitating adult learning through my roles at PVCC. During this time, I gained field experience in a variety of early learning settings including corporate, non-profit, private, and government funded locations. Through my experience in early childhood classrooms and facilitating learning for adults, a generative energy continued to fuel my love of learning. I am excited to be part of the Phoenix Modern team and share my experience, education, and passion with the community. I bring with me my expertise in emergent curriculum, interdisciplinary approaches, social emotional learning, collaborative facilitation, and trauma-informed care. My goals as a studio guide are to create a safe & comfortable space, create a sense of belonging, to be a co-learner, to be a listener to and an advocate for children, and to curate experiences that challenge thinking and support self-expression. I look forward to learning and growing with Phoenix Modern.
