Principal's Message

Greetings Anderson Community,Principal Profile


I am very honored to join the Anderson team and welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year.  I bring with me over fifteen years of instructional experience ranging from College to Elementary Education.  I taught at Christopher and Glider Elementary Schools and join you, most recently, from Martin Murphy Middle School where I was Assistant Principal.  My passion is hands on learning and out of the box solutions to capture the potential in each child.


I am privileged to join this community and continue its strong history in Sobrato Early Academic Learning (SEAL) in grades K-3 and Project Based Learning in our upper grades 4-6.  I am a strong advocate for curiosity in learning and allowing students to explore all the possibilities the world has to offer, especially in our Silicon Valley “Backyard.” Supporting Rigor, Relevance and the 4 Cs (Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking) provides our students with the fundamentals to problem solve and persevere. With an emphasis on equity and encouraging all students to believe in their passion, I am confident each an every one of our students, under the guidance of our exceptional team, will succeed today, tomorrow, and in life!


I look forward to meeting you.



Sarah Kates-March
