Blaine Teacher Nominated for Teacher of the Year

Posted on Friday, May 30th, 2014 at 1:26pm.

Earlier this month, the state’s teacher’s union chose their Minnesota Teacher of the Year, Thomas Rademacher, an English teacher in Minneapolis.

Emily Anderson of Blaine High School, however, was among the nominees.

Although she didn’t win the big award, we’d like her to know that she’s number one with Blaine residents.

Anderson teaches Social Studies at Blaine High School, which for most folks would be a full-time job. For Anderson, it’s only part of her very busy life. This mom of three also owns a busy photography business, Photography by Emily Marie. Then, she is the head coach of the Fridley chapter of Moms on the Run, a group that helps women train for 5k's, 10k's, 1/2-marathons, and full marathons.

As if that weren’t enough stuff for one person to cram into life, Anderson coaches the B squad girls’ soccer team and co-advises the National Honor Society and Future Educators Clubs.

Ms. Anderson went to Fridley High School and then went on to attend Bethel University, where she majored in Secondary Social Studies Education and minored in Political Science and Leadership Studies. Anderson received her masters degree, also from Bethel, in Educational Leadership.

As a former teacher, I hold a soft spot in my heart for educators. So much so that we offer amazing money-saving ways for teachers and other community heroes to save money when they buy or sell a home with the Kris Lindahl Team. Check it out here.

Congratulations Ms. Anderson!
