Melinda D. Anderson

By day Melinda D. Anderson is public education worldsaver. Writer, rabblerouser (and by her own admission) snarktastic. Primer: How do you know when what she's written represents her employer? When the employer's byline is on it. This isn't brain surgery.

By night she's cook, chauffeur and homework victim. In her free time she blogs and freelances on education and other issues, and feeds passion for sun, sand and surf.

Melinda grew up in Philadelphia, though she has never booed Santa Claus, and graduated from Temple University with a degree in Journalism.
