• 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!

    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!
