Bachelors of Science in Elementary and Special Education
Hi! My name is Tamara Anderson. I will be your child's 5th grade Science teacher. I have a dual Bachelors degree in Elementary and Special Education, which I earned at Northern Arizona University. This will be my 23rd year teaching in the Deer Valley Unified School District. I"ve taught all grades 1-6, but 5th grade is by far my favorite. We have a fun filled year ahead of us in science, and I can't wait to get started!
When I'm not at school, you can find me spending time with my wonderful family. My husband Richard and I have been married for over 20 years and have three amazing children- two daughters and one son. We also have a very sweet dog and a bearded dragon. Most evenings and weekends our family can be found at one sporting event or another. When I'm home, I try to relax by reading a good book, baking, or watching movies with my family.
These are a few of my favorite things...
Favorite Pastimes- Hanging out with my kids, searching the internet for new recipes, reading, baking, or shopping online
Favorite Color- Purple
Favorite Foods- Ice Cream and candy -All the healthy stuff. ;)
Favorite Vacation Spot- Anywhere with mountains, pine trees, and blue skies.
Favorite Science Topics- The human body, and space.
