Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year at iLEAD Spring Meadows. Our staff has already been busy preparing for you to join us on the first day of school, Tuesday, August 20. We have been learning a lot of new things and sharpening our skills in all content areas, as well as making our learning spaces welcoming so you are ready to dive into the new year when you arrive! For returning families, you will see many familiar faces as almost all of our staff is returning for the new school year. However, as we continue to grow, we are bringing on new staff and new positions. We have added an additional 2nd grade class this year, a school counselor, a behavior specialist, and additional Care Team members. I’d like to introduce you to a few new faces now!
Elissa Jacko, First Grade
Hi! My name is Ms. Jacko and I am a first grade facilitator this year at iLEAD Spring Meadows. I have spent the previous two years teaching third grade in Cleveland. I graduated from Miami University in 2017 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I love to read, travel, and snuggle my two cats. I am so excited to begin a new chapter of my life at iLEAD!
Lorena Munoz, School Counselor
My name is Mrs. Munoz and I am going to be your child’s school counselor this year! This is my first year at iLEAD and I am beyond excited to be here. I am looking forward to helping your child with any obstacles they may face and to grow with them. I’ll also be facilitating Spanish for kindergarten, first, and sixth grades. I’m happily married and have two beautiful children and two fur babies. I’m a MARVEL FAN!
Mary Alice Hampton, Math & Science
My name is Mrs. Hamilton, I will be teaching seventh and eighth grade math and science. This will be my fourth year of teaching. I graduated from BGSU with a Bachelors in Middle Childhood Education in 2015. I am licensed to teach science, math, social studies, reading, and language arts. My husband, Nick, and I have been married for four years and we have two cats. In my free time, you can find me sewing historical costumes, gardening, studying genealogy, hiking, reading, and traveling. This year in math I am really looking forward to teaching about geometry and simplifying algebraic expressions. In science, ecosystems, weather, and geology are going to be a ton of fun as well.
