Teacher Secret Lives
Nicole Anderson is a newer addition to the Darby teaching staff who teaches multiple English classes, including Honors English 10 and AP Language and Composition. When she is away from Darby, Mrs. Anderson is a caring mother and enjoys participating in many activities.
Students describe Anderson as funny and always ready to help with something in class. They also say that she is always willing to help with issues outside of school.
When asked what professional achievement she was the most proud of, Anderson replied swiftly.
“Probably my master’s thesis. It took years of experience and 2 years of research to get there.”
She then went on to talk about how she was given the opportunity to work with different professors from multiple backgrounds.
When Anderson is not teaching or caring for her kids, she attends Darby’s infamous football Friday nights.
“I love when the band plays in the halls and the football games! Such great spirit.”
When she is at home, Anderson spends time with her mini goldendoodle puppy, Harley.
Harry Potter is one of Mrs. Anderson’s favorite books. On pajama day during spirit week at Darby, she wore a whole Hogwarts outfit. She even considers her spirit animal to be a sparrowhawk, which are known to never stop pursuing. She connects with this creature because she likes “flying to new heights, small and seemingly sweet, while still being a fierce hunter.”
While talking to Anderson she explained that she had many role models that have shaped who she is.“…it is hard to pick just one. I think the characteristics of my role models are very key, though. Strong character, not afraid to stand up for what they believe, willing to fight for equal rights and opportunities for all, kind and caring, and good leaders. People that fit the mark are: Nelson Mandela, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Michelle Obama, Julie B. Beck, Maya Angelou and even… Oprah!”
Many of these people are well known for spreading equality and peace to all.
To sum everything up, Mrs. Anderson is a great addition to the Darby family! Her wonderful personality and unique characteristics will make the school even better than it was before.
