Hi! My name is Ms. Anderson and I am THRILLED to be your 2nd grade teacher. It is going to be an exciting year with a lot of learning and fun. I cannot wait to see what is in store for us. I am excited to learn all about YOU. Here is a few things about me!
I grew up in Elk River, Minnesota with my parents, Doug and Melissa, and "little" sister, Brianna who attends St. Thomas University in St. Paul, MN. (The picture is of my family at Harvard University, taken during an awesome vacation to Boston, Massachusetts.) When I graduated high school, I moved to Mankato, MN to attend Minnesota State University, Mankato and majored in Elementary Education. After graduation I was hired at Monroe Elementary in Mankato, MN to teach 2nd grade. I began working towards my Masters Degree at this time as well.
I moved to Denver from Minnesota in 2013 and started my experience teaching for Denver Public Schools right here at Steck!
When I am not teaching, you can usually find me running. I will be training for Tuscan Marathon in December, 2016. I plan to qualify for Boston Marathon before I am 30. With that, I am also an avid coffee drinker and you can find me with a smile on my face when I have a Starbucks in my hand.
I cannot wait to spend this year learning with you!
