Teachers share same name, but different experiences

History of names. Both US English teacher Emily Anderson, and US Physical Education teacher Cari Jo Anderson have interesting stories surrounding the similarity of their names. “[Anderson as a last name is] kind of nice because people know how to pronounce it easily but the common question is is it -son or -sen. I don’t know, it kind of takes away the feeling of individuality but people usually call me by my first name outside of school,” Anderson said.

Hoven returns to biking during recovery

US English teacher Matthew Hoven rides in the Alamanzo 100 bike race in May. “I like people-powered transportation, but running hurts and you’ll probably find that a lot of bikers are ex-runners or ex-hikers. I like to hike, I like to run — it just hurts too much and I can’t go as far as I can on a bike,”  Hoven said. “I discovered just how freeing it is, how I can pretty much go wherever there is even the hint of a path, so there is a lot of freedom there.”
