My name is Alison Hantak, and I am a second grade teacher at SASEAS. I am originally from Kankakee, IL (a small town south of Chicago). I came to Cincinnati to attend Xavier University. I graduated from XU in May of 2003 with a degree in Early Childhood Education. After graduation I hoped to stay in Cincinnati and was blessed to find a job at SASEAS School. This will be my fifteenth year at SASEAS teaching second grade. I also have a Master’s Degree in Reading Education from Xavier and a K-12 Ohio Reading Endorsement. While an undergrad at Xavier I met my husband, Neil. We have now been married for 12 years. We have three energetic boys, our 9 year-old Keegan, 6 year-old Griffin, and our youngest, Riley, turned 2 in October. Keegan is a fourth grader and Griffin is a first grader at SASEAS this year. My years at SASEAS School have been filled with wonderful experiences, and I look forward to each new year!
