Streetsboro -- Superintendent Michael Daulbaugh announced the names of some of the district's new teachers to School Board members July 10 while saying goodbye to others.

"I was excited to interview each one of these prospects," Daulbaugh said. "I was very energized after each interview. They bring quite a bit of energy and excitement. They bring lots of good ideas to the table, so I'm excited for you [School Board members] to meet them."

New hires include:

• Sarah Nemer was hired as a Wait kindergarten teacher, succeeding Kim Elliott, who retired. Nemer's salary is $38,735.

• Sarah Chaney was hired as Campus Elementary School second-grade teacher. Her salary is $42,730.

• Preschool teacher Faryn Boigegrain, whose salary is $40,819, was hired.

"We had a teacher who was on family medical leave for two years and has since resigned, so she'll be filling that position," Daulbaugh said. "She [previously] served as a long-term substitute."

• Heather Campbell was hired to a new position as special education teacher at Streetsboro Middle School. Her salary is $48,462.

"That is a new position, but we shifted the position from Defer to the middle school," Daulbaugh said.

• Alyssa Hendrix, elementary physical education teacher, succeeds Elle Ashby, who previously retired. Hendrix will receive a salary of $46,378.

"So Alyssa will be serving at both Wait and Campus," Daulbaugh said.

• Mary Romano, fifth-grade teacher, takes over Natalie Ekron's position at Defer, Daulbaugh said, while Ekron moved to the middle school. Romano's salary is $48,462.

• Allison Williams, first-grade teacher. "That is a new hire," said Daulbaugh, adding that she is one of the new teachers hired at Campus and Wait. Williams' salary is $44,293.

Resigning teachers include:

• Michelle Chiacchiari, who resigned as Henry Defer Intermediate School technology teacher. She was with the district for seven years, according to Daulbaugh, who said she is moving on to another job.

• Debra Nehlsen, a first-grade teacher at Wait Primary School, will be retiring as of Sept. 30. She has been with the district for 30 years, Daulbaugh said.

• Kim Elliot, Wait Primary School kindergarten teacher, resigned at the end of last school year. She was with the district for more than 20 years.

"A lot of people commented on how good of a teacher she was, and we wish her well," School Board member Kevin Grimm said.

• Janice Kohler, intervention specialist at Henry Defer Intermediate School, resigned.
