Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Bobbi Anderson and I will be teaching monolingual math and science.

I received my Associate of Science in psychology from Amarillo College and my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from West Texas A&M University. I also attended the University of North Texas and completed the coursework to receive my teaching certification. I graduated in December of 2014 from the University of Texas at Arlington with my Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in science education for grades K-8.

I hold the following Texas educator certifications: self-contained grades 1-8, History 1-8, Science 4-8 and English as a Second Language. I have 19 years teaching experience. 15 years in Dallas ISD and 4 years in GCISD.

I live in Mansfield with my family. My husband, Steven, and I have 3 amazing kids: Lucas (15), Rylee (13) and Aidan (8). Both Lucas and Rylee are active in scouting. Lucas is a Life Scout and my husband is the Committee Chair for his troop. Rylee is a Cadette and I am the leader for her troop. When I'm not teaching or scouting I like to scrapbook...I don't get much time for that!

I'm very excited to be at Silver Lake Elementary again this year! I hope your little ones are eager to start a new year full of inquiry. I believe that all children are natural scientists because of their genuine inquisitive nature. This year we will learn science and math through exploration! I believe that the classroom should be a safe, inviting environment in which students can take risks and feel comfortable learning new, challenging concepts. Children learn naturally through experiences in science and I aim to provide rich, meaningful experiences which will build schema for rich academic vocabulary development.
