USD 490 welcomes Alyssa Vanderhoof as the new Skelly Principal

USD 490 has hired Alyssa Vanderhoof as the new Skelly Principal beginning the 2021-2022 school year.

After graduating from Valley Center High School, Vanderhoof earned an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at K-State University, and two Masters degrees from Emporia State University: one in Curriculum and Instruction and one in Educational Leadership. She is also certified in building level school leadership, early-late childhood generalist K-6, and English for speakers of other languages pre-K-12.

Vanderhoof taught second and fourth grades for nine years before accepting a Principal position at Rawlins Elementary in Atwood, Kan. in 2019.

"We are thrilled to be moving back to the area and are excited to meet everyone," Vanderhoof said.

On her personal time, Vanderhoof enjoys being outdoors and visiting with family and friends. She and her husband of 10 years have four children. Three are school-aged and one is in daycare.
