Trinity-St. Luke’s welcomes new teacher Vanderhoof
Trinity-St. Luke’s Lutheran School will install a new preschool teacher Sunday at the 9:30 a.m. worship service at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Emily Vanderhoof will be installed as the 3K and 4K teacher. The congregation will honor Vanderhoof with a reception following the service.
Vanderhoof grew up in Milwaukee and Carmel, Indiana, graduating from the public high school in Carmel. Her parents are the Rev. George and Nannette Ferch. Ferch recently retired from the public ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod after serving several congregations, most recently Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Carmel.
Following high school graduation, Vanderhoof attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota, where she graduated with a bachelor of science degree in education in 2002. She was then assigned to teach at Emanuel Lutheran School in Brockway, Michigan. Following her marriage to Justin Vanderhoof, she accepted a call to teach at Martin Luther School in Neenah from 2003-05. After the births of their daughters, Vanderhoof returned to teaching this past school year, teaching grades one and two at Martin Luther.
Her husband will teach at Lakeside Lutheran High School this next year, primarily in English and social studies, as well as coach. The Vanderhoofs are the parents of three daughters who will be attending TSL.
Vanderhoof will teach 4K on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and 3K on Thursday and Friday mornings. Both classes run from 8 until 11 a.m. For families who need child care services when their child is not in the 3K or 4K classes, TSL offers morning care, extended care and after-school care programs.
TSL offers an educational program from 3-year-old kindergarten through eighth grade. More information can be found on the school website, www.tslwels.org, or by contacting Principal James Moeller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 261-3615.
