Mike Anderson

I am an independent education consultant who works with teachers and schools across the United States and beyond. Before becoming an independent consultant, I was a Responsive Classroom consultant, developer, and author. I also taught third, fourth, and fifth grades for fifteen years in Connecticut and New Hampshire.

I am also the author of several books including: The First Six Weeks of School, 2nd Edition (CRS, 2015), The Well-Balanced Teacher (ASCD, 2010), and The Research-Ready Classroom (Heinemann, 2006). You can learn more about me and my work at
