A Leader in Me School

Emily Anderson

Kindergarten Teacher

I love being with friends and family and spending time outdoors as well as being crafty and working in my backyard garden.  I grew up in Minnesota and still enjoy visiting friends and family every summer and holiday season.  My husband is an elementary counselor and my two sons attend Lopez.  

Educational and Professional Background

I graduated high school in 2000 from Northfield High School.  I then attended Luther College in Decorah, Iowa where I graduated in 2004 with a bachelor of arts degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Learning Disabilities.  In 2005 I started my teaching career in North St Paul where I taught in a special education Kindergarten classroom and a multicategorical special education program for 2 years before moving to Fort Collins in 2006 where I have taught for 16 years (2006 - 2022) at Laurel Elementary including 3 years in Special Education and 13 years in Kindergarten. 

Personal Interests and Hobbies

My family enjoys being outdoors including hiking, camping, skiing, and spending time at MN lakes!  

About My Classroom

I enjoy spending my days teaching and learning aside my students as we all strive to be better individuals that form a strong community together where everyone can learn, have fun, and be successful!
