Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Bobbi Anderson and I will be teaching monolingual math and science this year as well as sponsoring the Robotics Club.
I received my Associate of Science in psychology from Amarillo College and my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from West Texas A&M University. I also attended the University of North Texas and completed the coursework to receive my teaching certification. I graduated in December of 2014 from the University of Texas at Arlington with my Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in science education for grades K-8.
I hold the following Texas educator certifications: self-contained grades 1-8, History 1-8, Science 4-8 and English as a Second Language. I have 17 years teaching experience. 15 years in Dallas ISD and 2 years in GCISD.
I live in Mansfield with my family. My husband, Steven, and I have 3 amazing kids: Lucas (13), Rylee (11) and Aidan (6). Both Lucas and Rylee are active in scouting. Lucas is a Life Scout and my husband is the Committee Chair for his troop. Rylee is a Cadette and I am the leader for her troop. When I'm not teaching or scouting I like to scrapbook...I don't get much time for that!
I'm very excited to be at Silver Lake Elementary again this year! I hope your little ones are eager to start a new year full of inquiry. I believe that all children are natural scientists because of their genuine inquisitive nature. This year we will learn science and math through exploration! I believe that the classroom should be a safe, inviting environment in which students can take risks and feel comfortable learning new, challenging concepts. Children learn naturally through experiences in science and I aim to provide rich, meaningful experiences which will build schema for rich academic vocabulary development.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me!
My conference time is 10:40 to 11:30.
