Charles Black

Mr. Black always has a fun Music class for the students each week. They enjoy singing along with their favorite songs and hearing the Anderson School Song. He has created a sense of togetherness even when students are apart. 


Melody Pence

Melody goes above and beyond what is regularly required or hoped for as a math teacher. She puts so much work, effort, and creativity into her math lessons to reach all learning types. She had made math fun to learn for children who were horrified of math. Her efforts as a good teacher/citizen in turn help the children feel confidence in learning and become good citizens themselves.

Jessica Salomone

Jessica has supported the Anderson PTA for several years by coordinating social media posts and interactions. Even when requests are abundant and require immediate attention, she maintains a well-organized effort and always follows through allowing successful PTA communications.


Caroline Browne

In an effort to increase awareness for the online book fair, Caroline dressed up as a different
character each day. She stood outside of the school at drop off and pick up to promote the book fair.
The weather wasn’t always perfect, but she continued to do so each day that week. It showed great
commitment and determination on her part to be sure all were aware of the book fair. She made an
impression on many. Caroline went above and beyond the traditional role of Book Fair Coordinator!

In a year challenged by a pandemic and other health related struggles, Teri has risen to the occasion by checking in on absent students, following health protocols, and ensuring all health regulations are being followed by Anderson's student body. Not only has she stepped up to cover these issues, Teri has continued to give the students of Anderson the utmost care and attention.
