Jim Anderson teaches English and coaches Speech and Debate at Capital High School. He graduated from a tiny university in Texas with a B.A. in English, and received his Master in Teaching from The Evergreen State College.
Jim dabbles in union activities and state politics, and plans to increase his political involvement once finished with National Board certification. Elsewhere, he blogs educationally at 5/17, eclectically and personally at decorabilia, and fashionably at Mr. A's world of tacky ties. His wife Melissa also blogs. The two are perhaps the nerdiest couple in the world.
