Meet the Team

Brooke Waldron

Lead Teacher, Team Lead

Brooke Waldron

Brooke Waldron knew that she would work with kids from a young age. She is very passionate about teaching to each individual child. She has been teaching for 12 years using the Montessori philosophy and uses this method in her home as well as school. Brooke is certified in NAMC Upper Elementary and also holds certification in Lindamood Bell Dyslexia Training. During the summer Brooke works with students with Down Syndrome and Autism. Brooke has toured the Acton Academy model in Austin, Texas and has spent a summer training under Kaylee Reid who is known for her expertise in Project Based Learning. She was able to implement this training in a private school that she helped start. During her time at Idea Academy, Brooke organized week-long educational trips for her class to Yellowstone and Catalina Island Marine Institute. She facilitated and supported  her students in raising their own money for these trips. She is very excited to be part of Ignite and can’t wait to start the new year!

Chandler McNiel

Lead Teacher
Language Arts/Social Studies

Chandler McNiel

Chandler McNiel discovered his passion for writing and the English language at the age of 19 when he published his first novel. He then published his second novel at the age of 23. After completing a third novel, he began to pursue a career in education with hopes he could help kids discover their love for reading and writing much earlier in their lives than he did. After observing, speaking as a guest author, composing a Writers Workshop and holding a book signing at Ignite, he knew it was the place he wanted to teach. He loves the autonomy of the students, the positivity of the environment and the commitment of the teachers. Chandler believes a student’s education should be catered to them so they not only grow intellectually, but as individuals. In his class, he will help students grow as readers, writers and people.
