First Grade



Miss Rachel Anderson, Teacher

About Miss Anderson

In the classroom, I strive to: create a safe, nurturing, highly engaging, and positive atmosphere for my students.

Five words to describe my classroom: fun, happy, child-centered, active, inclusive

What I want children leaving St. Stephen’s to know: Education is the best gift they can give themselves. Never take it for granted because many are not afforded the same opportunities. Learn as much as they can and never cease wanting to learn.

What I want parents of students in my class to know: I believe they are their child’s first and most important teacher. Therefore, their success is based greatly on our collaborative efforts. Parental involvement is important and encouraged in my classroom.

Education: Bachelors in Elementary education from Bloomsburg University concentration in Mathematics
Master’s of Ed. In Early Childhood education from California University of PA

Outside of the classroom: spending time with my children, family, and animals. I love to cook, bake, read, exercise, listen to music and watch movies.
