Mrs. Anleeta Buchanan
Mrs. B LOVES the kids! I truly do love my "babies." This is my 11th year in education and my 6th collective year at AVM. In this time I have been a teaching assistant, case manager and Math co-teacher for 6th-8th grades. In this time, I have earned my Master's degree in Elementary Education from Roosevelt University and my Special Education Endorsement from University of St. Francis. I also sponsor Ms. R.I.G.H.T, Really Intelligent Girls hang Together, a mentoring program designed to build self-esteem and self-worth in middle school girls 6-8th grade. I love school sports, clubs and activities and you will find me cheering on boys basketball, track, supporting our cheerleading team, drama club and more! In addition to teaching, I am a wife and mother of a teenage daughter and son and an avid You Tube and Pinterest fan. You can follow me on Twitter (#MrsBlovesdakids) as well as my teaching blog "Co-Teaching Chronicles" on Tumblr (mrsblovesdakids).
