Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ashley Anderson and I am excited to join McKinley this year! I will be teaching Freshmen Literature and ACT Prep. I have previously taught World Literature, American Literature, and Journalism.
I graduated in 2010 from Southern Illinios University Carbondale with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism. In May 2016, I completed my teacher certification education with University of Missouri-St. Louis and in the Fall of 2016 I had my first classroom with St. Louis Public Schools. In 2018, I completed my Master's degree with UMSL. I have also just completed the Reading Specialist Certification education courses through UMSL.
I am passionate about helping my students learn the skills they need to be successful in and outside of the classroom. I am excited as we venture into this new school year and look forward to what the students will learn and what they will accomplish.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns througout the school year. The best way to reach me is by email.
