From teachers to front office staff to administrators, the roles vary, but the mission is the same. To recognize our team members, we will begin a Staff Spotlight Series! Every week, we will be spotlighting a staff member at each Intergenerational School!

Meet Ms. Silnicky

As we continue our Staff Spotlight Series, we want to introduce another new member of the Lakeshore Community, Hannah Silnicky. Ms. Silnicky joined Lakeshore’s Primary Cluster this year. After graduating from Indiana University, Ms. Silnicky taught for 2 years before moving to Cleveland and joining Lakeshore Intergenerational School!

What makes our school special?

The staff culture and collaboration makes Lakeshore special. Also, I love the way we think about student learning as an individual process.

What drew you to working in education?

I can’t remember not wanting to be a teacher, I’ve always loved working with kids and being in the classroom.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I am a vegetarian! I have been for over 10 years

Anything else you want people to know about you?

I am new to Cleveland, so I am always on the lookout for good restaurant recommendations!

Welcome to Lakeshore Intergenerational School, Ms. Silnicky!

Meet Ms. Jubell

Lori Jubell has been apart of the Near West Community for the past 7 years after graduating from John Carroll University. Ms. Jubell teaches Primary Cluster!

What makes our school special?

The incredibly helpful community we have!

What drew you to working in education?

I’ve always wanted to be a teacher; it was one of the only things I played as a child.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I used to be a burping champion and I won awards for painting in high school. Also, I have two dogs – they weigh 350lbs if you add their weight together! My favorite foods are the 3 P’s: pickles, popcorn, pizza!

Thank you Ms. Jubell for everything you have done for the Near West Community!

Meet Ms. Bennett

We are excited to introduce one of the newest members to the TIS-East Community, Sydney Bennett. Ms. Bennet is a first-year teacher from Cleveland State University. She is a long-term substitute for a Primary Cluster teacher, then will transition to an education aide!

What drew you to working in education?

I have always loved to be in school and wanted to teach children with as much enthusiasm and care as the teachers I had when I went to school. I’ve wanted to be an early childhood educator since third grade!

What makes our school special?

Students learn that learning is a lifelong process and in doing so become lifelong learners themselves.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I love to paint!

Welcome to The Intergenerational School, Ms. Bennett!
