Gail Anderson, a 6th grade integrated science teacher at Lake Oswego Jr. High School near Portland, OR, has been elected to serve on the Board of Trustees for the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE). Anderson also has served on the Oregon Middle Level Association Board and currently serves as secretary of the Oregon Middle Level Consortium.
AMLE is a global non-profit association and leading provider of quality resources, programs, and services for those who work with young adolescents – youth aged 10 to 15. Founded in 1973, AMLE has more than 34,000 members in 45 countries.
According to Anderson, “I am excited to have an opportunity to work with the national organization to support middle level education. As a middle level educator for 15 years, I am a strong advocate for this age group and I am looking forward to being a part of this group that helps make important decisions for middle level education.”
Members of the AMLE Board of Trustees serve a critical role in setting the strategic plan of the association and advocating for policies and practices that guarantee a quality education for all young adolescents.
