Ms. Anduze has the unique ability to get students to love reading and writing, regardless of how they felt before they entered her class. She has fantastic class management skills and involves her students in procedures and class rules.

Michele, your determination to constantly improve your educational status while raising a family is commendable. Especially during this time of alternative living with covid-19 you have become even more innovative, in your teaching skills and in keeping your children occupied on a daily basis. Your dedication to your profession is notable and you are well respected . You also do not forget to be respectful to others and do little nice things for them. I am pleased to have you in our family circle and am so proud of you
