Mr. Anderson

Good Day Cardinals, I'm in 5th year teaching at Strong Middle School. I teach special education for the 6th,7th, and 8th grade students. 
 
This will be my 5th year coaching in the district. I'm the head coach of the varsity football team and enjoy coaching middle school track in the spring. I'm excited to say that I have been part of our ESports program for the past 3 years. It is awesome to be around students in different mediums through out the school year and it allows me to get to know the students in different settings.
 
When I'm not working with students in our district, I enjoy spending time with my wife Leslie and two children Liam and Mila. I spend time gaming, reading, and hanging with my family. I enjoy staying active playing sand volleyball, bowling, and running. We have two cats Rob and Fig as well as a puppy named Bailey.
 
I'm looking forward to the new challenges of the upcoming school year! Go Cardinals!
