Mrs. Haave

Hi—I’m Mrs. Haave. I am the Principal’s/Financial Secretary at Vanderhoof. I’m beginning my 21st year here. Prior to coming to Vanderhoof, I worked 7 years at Martensen Elementary as a para, clinic aide and sub secretary. My husband, Steve, and I moved to Colorado over 40 years ago. We have three grown children that all live in the area. I’ve enjoyed establishing relationships with many students and families over the years. Now I’m seeing some of those former students return to Vanderhoof with their own children. I think this speaks volumes about the Vanderhoof community. It’s a special place and the reason I have been here so long. It’s an honor to be a part of this great community!

Mrs. Vanbuskirk

I have been the health aide at Vanderhoof for 24 years. I have enjoyed watching all the kids go through Vanderhoof and the kids that come back with their own families.

I live here in Arvada with my husband and two dogs. We have 2 grown children that live nearby. Some of the many hobbies I enjoy are hiking, camping, reading, fused glass, quilting and crafts.



Mrs. Mapleback

I have worked for Food Service for 15 years and at Vanderhoof since 2012. I love seeing the students everyday and hearing about their day.

I have 2 grown children, who live in Colorado and 1 grandson. I also have 1 fur baby.
