Of course, Mr. Anderson strives to equip his students with the reading, writing, and research skills they'll need to succeed in college, but he also aspires to cultivate a love for learning, reading, and writing that extends beyond the classroom. On a daily basis, Mr. Anderson aims to lead by example, reading, writing, and revising alongside his students. His classroom, 1603, is a place designed for students to draft, revise, communicate, think, and create.
Personal: Aside from teaching, Mr. Anderson is an avid reader, writer, and adult-league hockey player. When he isn't grading papers or creating lessons, he is most likely outdoors jogging, hiking, biking, or frequenting Purcellville playgrounds with his wife and two daughters. Mr. Anderson is also excited about welcoming his third child in November of 2022.
