Amber Anderson - 3rd Grade

My name is Amber Anderson, and I am one of the 3rd grade teachers here at EverGreen Academy. This is my 9th year with Evergreen and 7th year teaching. I am so happy to have been able to realize my passion at such an amazing school. I graduated from UW-Parkside in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Social Science. I previously taught children aged infant to 4k, and during the summer months I would work with mixed age groups.

Through my experience I found it important to incorporate many different teaching styles in my classroom. Every child is unique, and it is important to give them several options, so they may find the style that best suits them. I believe teaching should encompass the whole child, not just academics. In my class I will use real life scenarios to help students connect to what we are learning. I also encourage students to work in groups or with a partner to help see different thought processes and help them think deeper about the subject. I really do love this school and the students who attend. I am always proud of my students whether they are trying their best and not giving up, accomplishing goals, singing in our school concerts, or watching them participate in activities outside of school.

When I am not at the school working, I love being at home with my family and our crazy pets. Our youngest son started playing soccer last year and we are excited to cheer him on this fall and spring season. We like to go to Brewer’s games and when we can, we go watch our nephew play whatever sport he currently in. I am also a Wisconsin Badger’s fan and of course a Green Bay Packer’s fan. We also like going to festivals and fairs. Family is important to us, and we love to spend our time cooking out or having family dinners and when we can stay up late enough maybe a game night.
