Welcome to Second Grade!
Hi, I am Ms. Melissa Broaddus! I student taught at Vanderhoof 22 years ago and this has been my home ever since. I have been in Colorado most of my life, although the ocean has my heart. I am a Jeffco graduate as well and love teaching and supporting the district that I was once a student in. I received my undergrad degree from Metro State in Denver and my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Colorado Christian University. I have wanted to be a teacher ever since my 5th grade teacher Mrs. Nelson inspired me. She made such a difference in my life at such an impressionable age and we are still in touch today! I am honored and blessed to teach and pour into the lives of children. At home, I am blessed with an amazing son, my dachshund Koda, and kitty Baxter.
Hello and welcome to second grade! My name is Sarah West and I am so excited to become a Vanderhoof Roadrunner this year! I can’t wait to begin working with your child and your family!
Hello! I am Koda, a six year old Piebald Dachshund. My mom rescued me 5 years ago, but I really rescued her! This is my third year working at Vanderhoof as a pet therapy pup. I also volunteer at Children’s Hospital visiting children that need love and cheer. You may see me wandering the halls on Fridays, which is the day I get to come to school. I may be small, but I have a big personality and lots of love to share! I love to visit classrooms and enjoy when kids write to me. I even have my very own mailbox! I can’t wait to get back to school and see you soon!
