Welcome to 4th Grade!

    My name is Jenny van der Ziel and this is my 3rd year at Anderson Elementary and I am so excited about moving to 4th grade this year!  I have taught 6th grade reading and writing for 5 years and previously taught 4th grade reading and writing as well. I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year of learning!!

    A little about me:  I have been married to Pete for 24 years and we have 3 amazing kids. Pete is also a teacher. He teaches business/finance at Allen High School.  We have three amazing kids! Avery and Ali play lacrosse at Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee and our son Jake will be starting at Collin College in the fall. We love to travel, spend time with our family and be outdoors as often as we can. 

    I have a large family and love to see them as often as we can!
