Erik Anderson began teaching at Chelsea Public School in the fall of 2001. He teaches science, math, and PCE classes that include Timber Framing and Round Wood Furniture Making. After growing up in New Hampshire, Erik found himself west of the Connecticut River while attending Middlebury College. Upon graduation he worked in Ireland, New Hampshire and Colorado before returning to Vermont to begin teaching at the Mountain School in Vershire. In the summer of 2001 a series of fortuitous events led Erik to Chelsea. Erik now lives in Chelsea with his wife Jess and their two children Phineas and Hattie. The four juggle their time between tending animals, camping in the backyard, fishing and hiking excursions, and general mayhem.
Why I like teaching in Chelsea:
“The thing I like most about Chelsea School is how well you get to know students and their families. I also enjoy that as teachers we have the opportunity to teach a variety of different subjects. I think it helps students develop an appreciation for leading a well rounded life when they realize that the adults in their lives have a variety of differents interests.”
