Mrs. Rachel Anderson

       My name is Rachel Anderson and I’m excited to be at Shields as a Dyslexia therapist. I’m passionate about partnering with parents and other educators to help students become successful readers, writers and learners for life. 

      When I’m not at school, I enjoy time with my husband and two boys, ages 8 and 12 playing outdoors, playing games or just having a relaxing movie night at home. 

      My experience as a first and second grade teacher led me to pursue my Masters degree as a Reading Specialist at TWU.  Over my career I have also served as an instructional coach, reading interventionist, and have recently become a Licensed Dyslexia Therapist and Certified Academic Language Therapist.  I have been teaching students with Dyslexia and other reading difficulties for the past four years and look forward to watching the joy of reading spark in students for years to come   

      I’m looking forward to our learning journey this year and welcome you to partner with me in your child’s learning. Please feel free to call or email if you have any questions, or would like to set up a conference.
