Meet Mrs. Anderson
Mrs. Anderson is a seasoned writing teaching with over 35 years experience in the classroom. In addition to her reputation for developing her students' writing skills, she is also well known for developing their love for writing. Mrs. Anderson is a licensed teacher and holds a Master's degree in Education.
Not only did Mrs. Anderson (Mary) teach my kids how to be better writers, she made it interesting and fun for them too. They learned the skills and confidence to write reports, presentations, stories, poems and thank you notes. Writing well is a skill that will serve a student his/her entire life. Before being taught by Mrs. Anderson, I always thought my son's best subject academically was math. After her encouragement, instruction and inspiration, I would now say writing may be his best subject. We are encouraging him to explore ALL career paths now - not just those that are math-related like we had done before his time with her.

Mrs. Anderson is one of the most skilled writing teachers that I have observed in more than 33 years of working with educational professionals. My own sons were fortunate to have Mrs. Anderson as a third, fourth, and sixth grade writing instructor. I recommend all of my clients who have completed Level 4 of the Barton Reading and Spelling Program to work with Mrs. Anderson to increase their writing skills to an entirely new level.

When I reflect on my ability to write in a clear and precise fashion, the person I have found to be the most helpful and influential would definitely be Mary Anderson. She instructed me on how to elevate my writing and taught me skills necessary to make it happen. I can confidently testify that she has made me a more poised writer. I would not be in the place I am today without her help.

Mrs. Anderson was not only a warm and positive influence on my son’s life as a fledgling middle schooler, but she was an incredible teacher when it came to the foundational aspects of writing. Through her guidance and lesson plans, he easily learned how to write a topic sentence, how to write a variety of sentence types, and the essentials of grammar. With this solid foundation, he was able to have success as a writer.
Three years ago, I was taught by a truly amazing person. When I look back and think about who grew my clever wit and loving attitude, I think of Mary Anderson. She did not only teach me how to be a kind person, but she also can take credit for my writing skills, my abandonment of "then" and "so", and my constant search for the "perfect verb." Mary Anderson is a wonderful and understanding teacher.
