EL Specialist



Degrees and Certifications:

Altrice Anderson, EL Specialist

Hello! My name is Altrice Anderson, and I am so excited to work with your kiddos this school year!

This is my 18th year in Fort Bend ISD, and I have loved every minute of it! I taught Kindergarten for nine years, and this is my eighth year in the ESL Department. Teaching is such a rewarding profession, and I am very passionate about what I do. It warms my heart to see the academic, social, and physical growth that my students make each year. As an English Learner Specialist, my mission is to provide instructional support and coaching to build expertise in second language acquisition within the content area classroom. 

I am a product of Fort Bend ISD and a proud graduate of Baylor University. I’m not a big football fan, but I love watching my Baylor Bears play! Sic em’ Bears! My husband and I have two wonderful children, and we love spending time with family and friends.
