She spent the successive 20 years teaching kindergarten at Lydia Rippey Elementary School in Aztec, NM, until her retirement in 2010.
Alongside her primary endeavors, Ms. Anderson was the organizer of the Children’s Library in the Fort Stockton Public Library from 1980 to 1984 and also held the role of pre-school teacher at the First Baptist Church in Fort Stockton, TX, for five years.
