Hello! My name is Mark Vandenberg, and I am a member of the kindergarten team at Sunnyside. I was born and raised in De Pere, Wisconsin. I'm the oldest of four children. Playing hockey was my main hobby as a child. Following high school, I moved to Denver, CO to pursue a degree in Elementary Education. After graduation, I taught in the Westminster Public Schools District for four years. During that time, I taught kindergarten for three years and third grade for one year. I also earned a Master's degree as a Reading Specialist. In my free time, I enjoy snowboarding, golfing, wakeboarding, watching the Packers and grilling.
