Mrs. Amber Anderson
Hello! My name is Amber Anderson and I am excited to serve in the role of instructional coach at Buies Creek Elementary. This is my 21st year as an educator in Harnett County Schools, with 20 of those spent as a classroom teacher. I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade. This year, I will also serve first grade students as a Reading Recovery teacher at Harnett Primary School. I am a native of Harnett County and a product of Harnett County Schools. I have a lot of pride in the education that I received in Harnett County, and I work hard to provide that same educational experience for today's students. As an instructional coach, I work alongside teachers, providing support and staff development, to ensure we are using the best research-based strategies to increase both teacher capacity and student achievement.
On a personal note, I have five children who all currently or previously attended Harnett County Schools. Megan attends UNC-Wilmington, Hailey is a 10th grader and Evan is a 9th grader at HCHS, Hunter is in 7th grade at HCMS, and Noah is a 5th grader- right here at BCES. My husband, Jesse, and I stay very busy with our jobs and our kids' activities, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Our family loves to camp, fish, spend the day on our boat, participate in many sports, and travel as much as we can when we are away from school.
