Peggy Sturm-VanderPol, R.N.
My name is Peggy Sturm-VanderPol, R.N. and I have been in nursing for 44 years now and I have enjoyed every minute of it. These last 27 years have been in school nursing which I especially love.
I have a passion for working and teaching teams of students on how to keep our school safe in emergencies. So whether I am out teaching on campus or monitoring the health Room you can contact me through the information on this page.
My goals are threefold; to keep our students safe and healthy, to manage health problems as they arise, and to be a resource and advocate for families in our Maywood Hills Community.
To help me achieve these goals please keep me updated of any changes regarding your child's health and be sure to inform the office staff if there are changes in your emergency contact information.
I am at school Monday through Friday and the hours to reach me here at Maywood Hills are 9:00-3:30pm.
I have enjoyed getting to know the students and families here at Maywood and as always, let me know if you have any questions. I am here as a resource for you.
