June 12, 2019

Andersen earned her undergraduate degree in elementary education from UW-Madison’s School of Education in 1990, and today is a gifted and talented/young scholar specialist at Westview Elementary School in Apple Valley, Minnesota. She works with talent development in younger grades to help underrepresented populations take higher level classes when they get to middle and high schools.

The moving video shows selected teachers talk about the joys of their work, believing they are being interviewed for teacher recruitment. Later, the teachers are shown videos of their students, and are surprised by the students visiting at the recording studio.
