"Hello! My name is Ms. (Madeline) VerHage and I am the 2nd grade teacher here at SKDS. I am beyond excited to be back at SKDS as a teacher this time around. I graduated from SKDS in 2009 and I am very blessed to start my teaching career at such an outstanding school with a supportive team of teachers and families. The greatest gift of all is being able to practice my faith and my passion of teaching at the same time!
After graduating from the Beaver Dam High School in 2013, I attended Marian University and graduated with an Early Childhood/ Elementary degree in December 2017. I student taught in 3rd grade at Prairie View Elementary and after my student teaching experience, I began teaching Early Childhood Special Education at Prairie View.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside, reading a good book, fishing, watching the Wisconsin sports team, and spending time with my friends and family.
My two favorite quotes are, "Believe in yourself, and the rest will fall into place. Have faith in your own abilities, work hard, and there is nothing you cannot accomplish." and "How cool is it that the same God who created mountains, oceans, and galaxies, looked at you and thought the world needed one of you too?"
