Mariah Anderson

Northpoint Elementary

3rd Grade Teacher

How long have you worked in Spring Lake Park Schools?
This is my second year in Spring Lake Park Schools.

Why did you choose to join Spring Lake Park Schools?
I chose to join Spring Lake Park Schools because it was evident that students come first. "High expectations, high achievement for all. No excuses." says it all to me. In our district, we are open about what excuses might be but we leave them at the door in order to help all students.

What's the best part of your day, as an employee of Spring Lake Park Schools?
The best part of my day is seeing my students discover ways to apply their learning outside of our classroom. Also, the smiles... from third graders, custodians, coworkers, all of them!

What do you do when you're not at work?
My favorite things to do outside of school include spending time with my family and friends, reading, calligraphy, trying new food, traveling, and being outside. A fun fact about me is that I have two scars from sneezing!

What makes you #SLPPantherProud?
I am #SLPPantherProud of a district that puts students’ security, hopes, dreams, ideas and achievement first.
