Kendall Hoover

Pre-K Teacher

Hi, Kendall Hoover!

I am excited to be joining the Meadows team! I’m a recent graduate from Miami University with a major in early childhood education and a minor in special education. I’ve lived in Dublin my entire life and I’m ecstatic that I get the chance to educate students in the area. I come from a hockey family and they are my world. I have two brothers, Jeffrey who is 25 and Keegan who is 14. I also have my lovely parents, as well as my two dogs: Jagr and Lila. Having a brother 8 years younger than me has inspired me to become an educator. I have babysat and nannied ever since I can remember. I love watching the kids learn and grow. This will be my first official teaching job and I couldn’t be happier! I cannot wait to work with the students and encourage them to learn to their fullest potential!!

Director/Teacher

Hi, I’m Susan Bolongaita!

It is my privilege and honor to join you in this great adventure of providing a high-quality preschool education for your children as your Core Knowledge Preschool Director and Teacher. I have a Master’s Degree in Basic Education Teaching and Preschool Education. I worked for a number of years as assistant director at a preschool in Chicago called Early Learning Foundations. I also spent some time volunteering with a Catholic youth group called Christ’s Youth in Action where I worked with university students in helping them grow spiritually. I love children and have been teaching them for most of my adult life. I am married and now that I have children of my own, being a mother has become a vocation too. On behalf of the teaching staff, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Meadows Academy family! We all look forward to getting to know you and in working together to prepare your child for success in Kindergarten and beyond!
