Melinda Anderson

By day, Melinda Anderson is public education worldsaver. Senior writer for teachers union president, she writes and edits speeches, blog posts, bylined articles and video scripts.

By night, she's cook, chauffeur and homework victim. In her free time: she blogs 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.
