Nine-year-old Jacob Anderson is The Windham Eagle student of the week. Jacob attends Raymond Elementary School and is in Maria Parisi’s third grade class. He hopes to become a game warden after he goes to college. He likes math best.
When asked who has meant the most in his education, Jacob said, “I have to say that last year being my first year in RES, the person that has meant the most to my education would be my second grade teacher Mrs. Pennington. She made me feel so welcome in my new school, pushed me to learn about everything, and believed in me that I could do it all.”
Jacob lives with his mom, dad, two younger sisters and a dog named Indy.
“My family is the most important thing in my life right now, because I love them. They help me through things that make me sad or mad, and I can’t wait to tell them about things that happen at school or something new that I have learned. I couldn’t imagine having any other family,” Jacob said.
Jacob likes the first two Harry Potter movies. He really likes building with Legos. “It is awesome to see what I can build!” He also likes biking, hiking mountains, fishing, camping and swimming. In the winter he ice fishes, snowshoeing and sledding.
He is a bear in Cub Scouts and is in the third and fourth grade chorus, takes hip hop classes, plays soccer and does Mad Science and cooking classes.
