Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mrs. Anderson. I am a First Grade teacher at Spring Creek Elementary. This is my 19th year teaching. I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, Third Grade, Title I and Reading Recovery. When asked, "What has been my favorite grade to teach?" I respond, "All of them!" Each year is a new and fun experience! I have a B.S from Penn State in Elementary Education. I am dually certified with an Instructional II Certificate in both Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I also hold a certification in Reading Recovery from Shippensburg University. Finally, I am working on my Masters at Slippery Rock University in Reading with certification as a Reading Specialist and Literacy Coaching.
Some personal things about me are that I live in State College with my husband Carl, our 2 sons; Owen and Kipton, 2 Yellow Labs; Fenway and Audrey and our French Bulldog, Hattie. I have a Bearded Dragon named Kevin (which is our class pet). In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, visiting the beach, golfing, reading, and watching football. Children's Literature is a passion of mine. I think there is nothing better in life than reading or listening to an enriching picture book! Some of my favorites included: Stellaluna by: Janelle Cannon, Brave Irene by: William Stieg, Tops and Bottoms by: Janet Stevens, and Owen by: Kevin Henkes.
