About Mr. Anderson

This is my thirteenth year of teaching and I am a “second-career” teacher. For the 12 years prior to teaching I worked as an engineer and manager. My first degree was in Mechanical Engineering from UW-Platteville. I have worked for Kimberly-Clark, 3M, Hormel, Slidell and lastly C.G. Hill & Sons as General Manager of their machine building facility. Also, I am currently co-owner of a small businesses: Reverse Engineering (supplying OEM parts for packaging equipment).

To make the career change I spent three years taking night courses in education and mathematics. In January 2007 I graduated from St. Mary’s University in Minneapolis with a degree in Instruction-Mathematics 7-12. I continued my education and was awarded my Masters in Instruction in August 2009. This past summer I spent many hours investigating new math curriculum; attended professional development on STEM and reading about volleyball coaching; I also continued blogging about my thoughts with respect to math education (21stmathteacher)

I enjoy spending time with my family – my wife and children & foster kids, volleyball, working on my house, running, biking and playing/watching sports.

I know every student can succeed – though some may have to work harder than others. My job is to help each student on their individual journey. 

A day without math is like a day without sunshine.
