Welcome to 3A!


 My name is Kristi Anderson.  I earned my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a minor focus in Reading from the University of Sioux Falls.  I have been teaching at Garretson Elementary since 2007 and find so much joy in a classroom full of third graders!  There are very few dull moments as everyday is filled with fun learning adventures.   My husband Matt, myself and our daughter Kendall live on a farm west of Hartford.  We enjoy doing many outdoor activities and spending time with our families.


Feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns and victories at or call ​605-594-3453 ext. #301
