Mr. Mike VanDoornik

I love teaching (and my 2 dogs Layla & Zoe). I have been teaching for 14 years now and have spent the last 5 years as a teacher here at West Maple. I believe that learning is a lifelong process... One that should always strive to be engaging and fun. We do a lot of work with our hands and minds in my classroom, and when we can we like to get OUTSIDE of the classroom.

This summer I am looking forward to getting married! Be sure to ask me about the wedding when you see me in the fall! 

I take a tremendous amount of pride in my role as an educator. I truly believe that I have the best job in the world.
