Born and raised in Eastern Montana, Luann Anderson grew up as one of eleven on a farm, where her job every day was doing whatever job needed to be done. The work ethic and dedication of her parents continue to inspire her to this day. She has also lived in Bismarck and Turtle Lake (North Dakota) Plevna, Flaxville, Whitehall, and Florence (Montana), Dupree (South Dakota), and Cowiche (Washington), where she serves the kindergarten through third-grade students at Marcus Whitman Elementary in the Highland School District. Not every small town in the West, but an impressive number of them! </
After earning her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, with a Minor in Coaching, from the University of Mary in Bismarck, and her Master of Education degree from the University of Montana in Missoula, Luann worked as a teacher, and a coach, before becoming a site director for Altera.
Luann is married and the proud stepparent of three grown children and six grandchildren. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with them throughout the summer and attending sports events with her husband, Mark. She has a strong commitment to the students and families she meets through her job and feels blessed to be able to work with them every day.
