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!!

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!
