Welcome to 8th grade science. I am Mr. Anderson. I have had the privilege of teaching here at McElhinney since the school opened. I have spent most of that time teaching 8th grade science and Algebra 1 with a couple years in 7th grade and a class of 6th grade. I have thoroughly enjoyed every year I have had the opportunity to work here at McElhinney. The students are an exception to middle school. As a whole, they are a group driven to succeed, but anxious to have fun. This makes for a fun mix.
I began my teaching adventure in 1997 at an international school in Papua New Guinea teaching 6th grade students. This opportunity lasted a semester. Upon my return to the States, I was hired to teach 2nd grade in Hacienda Heights. In 2003, my wife and I moved out to the Murrieta/Temecula Valley. I have had the wonderful journey of teaching every grade level from 2nd through 8th. I have, however, found 8th grade to be an exciting place to work.
