Ms. Sarah Anderson
8th Grade Teacher
Has been teaching at Resurrection since: 2011
Education: BA in English
Why did you choose to teach at Resurrection?
I was drawn to Res because it is a school that truly lives out the values it promotes. The smaller campus and strong community make this school a true partnership between students, parents, and teachers.
How do you inspire students to enjoy learning?
I try to share my passion for language arts with my students, while leaving time and opportunity for laughing and enjoying what we are working on.
How do you keep current with the subject areas you cover?
Teacher collaboration, both in person and online (Twitter is a great way for teachers to share ideas!)
If you were stranded on a deserted island with just one thing, what would it be?
An endless supply of books, so I would be able to keep doing something I enjoy.
What are some of your interests/hobbies?
Traveling, especially to Disneyland; rooting for the Oakland A’s and the Stanford Cardinal; jewelry making
What do you enjoy most about teaching?
That “aha” moment when a student understands the lesson.
