All about me/Alles über mich

  • Hello and welcome to my "about me" page!  My name is Nicole Anderson (or Frau Anderson) and this is my fourth year at AUGS and the third year of our year-long 7th and 8th grade German/Spanish classes!  I have been teaching since 2008.
    Random things to know about me:  I love baseball and am an avid White Sox fan.  During the summer I like to travel and visit baseball stadiums.  In summer 2017 I went to Comerica Park (Detroit), Rogers Centre (Toronto) and Dodgers Stadium (Los Angeles) and I always make time to catch games in Chi-town (yes, even Cubs' games).  In my free time I like to read, go hiking and run.  I have been a vegetarian/sometimes pescatarian for 11 years.  I have two younger sisters and a younger brother.  I am auntie to my best friend's children - Paul and Dany.  I also have the cutest kitty in the world, Lena!
