Mrs. Kendall Anderson
Hello from fabulous fourth grade!
I am a teacher of 4th graders, proud BHS alumni, and a life-long learner! In addition to that stellar list of descriptors, I self-identify as a STEM enthusiast, seeker of knowledge, and specialize in good vibe giving. If that doesn't impress you, let me try again. I have been a highly qualified teacher (look that up, it's a thing) in the Braymer C-4 school district for 14 years and have managed to learn something new every...single...day. I hope to pass along this zest for life and pride in the public school system to my students.
Mrs. Kendall Anderson teaches 4th graders at Braymer Elementary. Although she has many interests, including reading, health and fitness, listening to music, and amateur quilting, education (both her own and that of children) continues to be a passion. At the risk of over simplifying a complex philosophy, cultivated over many years in the field of education, she allows this to be her mantra in the classroom, "Seek to understand." Meaning both in the academic world (the classroom/school) as well as in a societal/conflict resolution stand point. She has found that both meanings are applicable in producing results, academically but also to navigate the relationship conflicts that may arise in a collaborative setting such as a 4th grade classroom. Mrs. Anderson hopes to motivate her students by being motivated herself. Inspiring students to care about their progress by showing that she cares about their progress. Sharing in, along with individual students and families, the celebrations of success but also the doubled down determination when goals are not met. This professional educator welcomes and encourages families to stay active in their child's educational process because after all, they are their child's most important teachers and role models. From parenting her own children, she knows that being a parent, especially when there are struggles, is a most difficult job.
