Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Anderson

 

I am so excited to be at Westfield Intermediate School this year! I hope that we have an exciting, engaging year full of growth. 
I live in Springfield currently, though I grew up near Foxboro, MA (where the Patriots play). This is a busy year for me. Besides starting in a new school, I will also be getting married and earning another degree. Years when I have free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, Pats games, and playing with my nephew. 
 Humanities consists of Reading, Writing, and Social Studies. This year, we will focus on reading closely, analyzing text, and writing for a purpose. While there are required texts, it is also important to me that students find books they can connect with so that they can appreciate the experience of reading for fun. 
 My favorite subject in school was History, and I am thrilled that I will be able to teach more of it this year. We will spend time discussing the early colonization of the United States, the Revolutionary War, slavery and the Civil War. 
My extra help hours will be Thursdays from 2:35-3:20.
It is important to me that our classroom maintains a safe sense of community. There is a large focus on discussion, with all students having a voice.
