Introduction

  • Welcome to 5th Grade!
    Science/Social Studies
    Mrs. Anderson

    I am so excited to be your Science and Social Studies teacher this year. This is my 11th year at Southern Lehigh.  My first few years were spent at Hopewell before moving over to the Intermediate School.  I earned my Bachelor's degree from Cedar Crest College and my Master's from Wilkes University. 

    Prior to becoming a teacher, I spent some time in the United States Air Force.  My husband continues to serve in the Air Force. He has been doing so for 23 years!  I am the lucky mom of two wonderful boys.  One, Josh, is off on his own beginning his Air Force career and lives in New Mexico. The other, Tyler, will be in 10th grade.  Both have kept me very busy.  Tyler continues to.
     

    I LOVE to travel! In recent years, I have been to Mexico, Italy, Texas, Rhode Island, New York, Michigan, Arizona, California, and Vermont.  This summer alone, I visited New York, Michigan, and countless local venues. I promise to share many stories about my travels as we move through the year.
               

    I also greatly enjoy watching sports.  Baseball and Football are my favorites to watch.  I do cheer for the local teams, Iron Pigs, Phillies, Eagles, but as a household we are Michigan Fans.  Both of my boys have been involved in swimming and diving, so of course, I do like to watch that too. I will basically go to any sporting event.  
      

    I am known to seek adventure! I am usually willing to try anything that may be a little fun.  I love the outdoors and enjoy participating in outdoor sports all year long.  I love to snowboard, ride bike, hike, kayak, and swim.
           

    I have even been known to get dirty!
     

    We will have a great year together. I look forward to getting to know you and hearing about the many adventures you have.  Together we will make 5th grade an amazing experience.  You may even learn something!
