STOW — The Stow-Munroe Falls City School District has named Julie Miller and Iisha Collier as curriculum supervisors for grades K-12.

They replace Julie Obraza, the former director of teaching & learning, whose contract was non-renewed in May.

Miller, the curriculum supervisor for grades 7-12, started working for the Stow-Munroe Falls City School District after graduating from Stow-Munroe Falls High School and returning in the role of elementary school teacher many years ago. Miller has also held the titles of IB Coordinator and most recently, Science and Social Studies Integration Specialist.

"I’m looking forward to my new role working with teachers, students, administrators and families in our district. I’m so excited that I have the opportunity to bring all of our ideas together so we can meet our ultimate goal which is doing what’s best for our students," says Miller.

Collier will serve as the Curriculum Supervisor for grades K-6. She has been a resident of Stow for the past eight years. Collier joins SMF Schools with a long standing career and experience as a Literacy Intervention Specialist, teacher, Instructional Specialist and Dean of Students. She joins SMF Schools from her most recent position as Dean of Students for the Akron Public School District.

"I’m so excited to collaborate with new people and share new ideas on how to best support our teachers and students across the district. With fresh eyes and new knowledge, I will be able to synergize with my colleagues and support the vision and mission of Stow-Munroe Falls City School District," says Collier. 

The new curriculum supervisors will lead The Office of Teaching & Learning which is dedicated to enhancing the education of every student through a professionally developed staff, Pre K-12 state standards curriculum and the opportunity for parents to be actively engaged in their child's education.

"I couldn’t be more pleased with the selection of Julie Miller and Iisha Collier," said Superintendent Tom Bratten. "They are very bright and very capable women who will work hard for our teachers and students as well as their families. They seem to be a great team and an all-around good fit for this new role in our district."
