About Ms. Anderson

I’m excited to be back at Greenville High for a seventh year, where currently I'm teaching  Speech & Debate (Spring) and Research (Fall). I also teach British Literature and Journalism. Through the combined journalism class, I advise The Nautilus  (yearbook) and The Greenville High  News  (newspaper) staffs, as well as the spring literary magazine, Windows and Mirrors.  Currently, I serve as an academic advisor to juniors.

I enjoy photography, writing, reading, boating, bicycling, antiques, and travel.  My familay and I are active in animal rescue in downtown Greenville. Additionally, we recycle, garden, support organic and local foods, and advocate urban beekeeping.  Also, We are active supporters of  the arts, the Swamp Rabbit Trail, downtown Greenville, and Clemson University. As foodies, my family and I can be found exploring local eateries, concocting new recipes, or baking organic cookies for people and dogs.

As a Greenville native and lifelong resident, I am proud to be a 4th generation GHS alumnus and to follow my family's footsteps in education.
