Mr. Richard Anderson

After retiring from 31 years of teaching Middle School Science in Missouri, my wife and I moved to SW Florida, and I wanted to get back into the classroom, so here I am!  I have a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree in Biology, and have lifetime Missouri Certification in Secondary Biology and Chemistry.  Since moving to Florida, I have obtained my Certificate to teach Science to Middle School and High School Students.

Primary Textbook 6th Grade: Elevate Science (Earth) for Florida, Published by Pearson (2019)

Primary Textbook 7th Grade: Elevate Science (Life) for Florida, Published by Pearson (2019)

A link to the electronic textbook (e-Text) can be found on each Student's CCPS Classlinks Page, and the icon is called Pearson Realize.  The text has many options that students can utilize that we don't have time to explore in class.  In addition, if the student needs to take notes and they do not have their physical textbook, they can access the e-Text as long as there is Internet access.  There is a read-aloud option for students to select if they would like to have the text read to them.  Finally, for students (and parents) that want to view the textbook but do not have the actual book, use the e-text.  This is a great idea if you are absent and need to do a reading assignment, or use the e-text to help complete an assignment.  The student's Single Sign On Credentials through Classlinks should get them into the e-Text.
