Hi, my name is Colleen Anderson and I am the Math Specialist at Andover Elementary School.My teaching career began in 1990 as a 2nd grade teacher. For over 17 years I taught in the primary grades, spending my time equally between 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade. I enjoyed teaching all the subject areas but had a true love for helping my students develop early numerical understandings. This led me to attend the University of Minnesota St. Mary's where I focused my studies on Authentic Assessment in Elementary Mathematics. I had no idea that this would eventually bring me to a knew professional position as a Math Recovery Teacher.Becoming a Math Recovery Teacher provided me with numerous educational training opportunities. Opportunities that pushed my own understandings of how children learn and how I can better help students build a deeper, more meaningful understanding of numeracy.My current position as a Math Specialist allows me to share this knowledge with my colleagues, as well as the students, here at Andover. I have the best of both worlds right at my fingertips every day!Anoka-Hennepin Math Specialist Philosophy--- "Ensuring mathematical success for all."Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
Daily Schedule:My daily schedule varies but feel free to leave me a message or send me an email. I check my emails and voice mail every day I am in the building.
