Ms. Anderson

Hello, My Name Is...



Welcome to my teacher page, students and families!
My name is Ms. Anderson and I am very excited to be teaching your child(ren) this year! I am an educator in the Department of Exceptional Students here at Adamson Middle School. I will be teaching English/Language Arts in grades 6, 7, & 8, in both co-teaching and small group/resource settings. Students in my classroom are held to the expectations outlined in the Georgia Standards of Excellence for content curriculum while receiving appropriate individual accommodations. I believe that ALL students can learn and they enter the classroom with their own set of abilities and attributes. I am merely a catalyst to assist them in operating within their full potential. I also believe that "it takes a village..." and I look forward to working in a collaborative fashion with you in the future!
