Mrs. Anderson


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 from Northern Arizona University. This will be my 24th 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  almost  22 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
