Dear Vandyke Elementary Families,

I am honored to serve you as your elementary principal. Greenway has a reputation for excellence and I feel fortunate to be part of a school culture focused on student learning, a commitment to high expectations, innovation, and collaboration. 

About me; I have been involved in education for over 25 years as a teacher, community education director and now as a principal. My husband Bill and I settled in the school district and have raised two children, Jenae and Jaden, both proud Greenway High School graduates. My children have left the nest and launched into career and families of the their own. I have one grand daughter who brings so much joy to my life. 

Vandyke holds a special place in my heart as it was such a great school for both my children to start their education. As a parent I remember feeling blessed that my children had the good fortune to attend a school where I knew staff cared about them and their needs as unique individuals.

Now that my nest is “empty” I am thrilled to come to school every day and be part of the amazing Vandyke team and “fill” my nest with your wonderful children.

I look forward to working together with each of you this year at our “school by the lake”, Vandyke elementary! If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 218-245-6601 (direct line) or


Mrs. Susan Hoeft
