1st Grade - Mrs. Anderson

A little about me . . .
Hi, I am Abby Anderson and I am the first grade teacher in the Cheyenne Wells School District. I grew up in Eaton, Colorado in a family of four, with just one younger sister. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in spring of 2020. I am now working towards getting my Master's degree in Special Education. I am excited to be able to continue my teaching career in such a welcoming place! Some things I enjoy doing are reading, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends. I am so excited to be able to work with and teach your children this year!
