Aspen's principal ready to get started

-A A +A

Kathryn Vandenkieboom had a pretty good year last year, as students and staff moved into their new building, but she’s hoping this year will be even better.
“Aspen’s staff is made up of wonderful, truly caring, people,” said Vandenkieboom. “I feel fortunate to work with all of them.”
There’s at least one new family member on the team, as Jennifer Washnok joins the Aspen Tiger team as a living skills teacher. “We’re very lucky to have Jennifer on our staff, she has a wealth of knowledge about kids with special needs,” she said.
The living skills classes head to Aspen and the Tiger team is currently interviewing candidates for a new reading intervention teacher. The new position will help both students and teachers to develop the skills it takes to be a strong reader.
Mrs. Boom, as she is called by the children, wants all families to get involved with the Aspen’s PTO. The group has contributed in large ways like new basketball court surface and markings and reading to kids.
Vandenkieboom spent this summer in Ocean City, Maryland, with husband, John, but it wasn’t all fun and games — one of her summer activities included scrubbing the grout in her entire house with her toothbrush.
