Nashua elementary teacher honored for real-world lessons
Anderson, who is in only her second year as a teacher after leaving her original career in the private sector, was named Teacher of the Year for her hands-on approach and dedication to technology, said Ed Lecius of the Lions Club.
“I love being a teacher. Jane pushed me along, and now in regular classrooms I just haven’t looked back,” Anderson said. “I love having my classroom. This school is a fantastic school; the staff is just incredible. It is a wonderful place to learn from and to grow with.”
“She is very dynamic. She is a model for someone that is always learning, and that has to be one of the strongest attributes of a successful educator. As a teacher, you are always supposed to be thinking and learning and adjusting. She is a great example of that,” Quigley said.
“She has already made a great impact on the lives of the students,” Lecius said.
Lecius said Anderson’s class has been monitoring and handling the incubation and care of baby ducks.
Anderson said the integration of technology into the classrooms is tantamount to preparing students for the real world.
