I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce my self as the new Assistant Principal at Schrop Intermediate School. I am Jeff Miller. I have been with Springfield Local Schools for 20 years. I have taught every grade from third to eighth, focusing mainly on mathematics. I have also been the middle school wrestling coach for several years. I have been married for 21 Years and have two children, a thirteen-year old daughter and a sixteen-year old son. I am an avid Buckeyes fan and spend as much time as possible engaged in outdoor activities. My goal is to continue to serve our students, parents, and community in order to build a strong partnership that our students deserve. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or suggestions that you have that can benefit our students and our schools.
My name is Stacy Manzo and I have been an Intervention Specialist with Springfield Local Schools for the past 18 years. This year I moved from the Junior High to Schrop and I'm looking forward to a new adventure. My husband and I live in Tallmadge with our two kids and a new puppy named Boca. My son, Mark, is a 4th grader at Munroe and my daughter, Lauren, is a 2nd grader at Dunbar. I enjoy traveling during the summers with my family, attending my kids' sporting events and running when I get the chance. All in all, I love teaching in Springfield and I'm excited to work in a new building where I get the opportunity to reach some of the younger students.
Hello. My name is Lisa Villers and I am a fourth grade Language Arts Teacher at Schrop Intermediate School. I have worked for Springfield for thirteen years but this is my first year as a classroom teacher. This new position has proven to be exciting and challenging at the same time.
I graduated from Kent State University in 2009 with a Bachelors Degree in Middle Childhood Education with a Reading Endorsement.
Other than teaching and all the satisfaction received from it, the most important parts of my life are my three wonderful children .. Jeffrey 29, David 25 and Samantha 23. I love family gatherings and especially family vacations. I have a black and white Yorkie Poo named George who reminds me daily of his never-ending energy. Reading, hiking and watching movies are always in my weekly routine.

I graduated with an elementary education degree and reading endorsement from the University of Akron. I earned a Master’s Degree in special education from Malone College. I have been with the Springfield School District for twenty years. I started my teaching career at Lakemore in fifth grade and also taught fourth grade there. After Lakemore Elementary was closed in 2008, I taught fourth grade at Schrop for two years. Prior to returning to Schrop this school year, I taught third grade at Young Elementary for five years.
