Director Maggie Stauffer is in her 5th year working at the Chagrin Falls Intermediate School as an Educational Aide.  She is also a mom of three boys Jack (19), Sam (15), and David (12).  Since moving here from Chicago in 2008, they have been long time supporters and members of the REC and swim team.  Jack worked maintenance for 3 years and Sam worked concessions for a year at the REC and Maggie serves on the REC Council and has run the concessions at the swim meets for the past 3 years.  Maggie is excited to see all the kids from school at the REC day camp!


Paula Suzelis has been a resident of South Russell for almost 30 years and enjoys teaching her 4’s class at The Methodist Preschool in Chagrin Falls.  Some of her best summer memories include spending many days and nights at the Chagrin Rec with her 2 sons (who are now college students), including her time as a swim team volunteer.   Paula is excited for the opportunity to co-direct the preschool summer camp and share her days and enthusiasm with the children.

Megan is excited for the opportunity to co-direct the preschool summer camp and to spend her days sharing laughter and fun with the children.
