A bit about me
My name is Chris Anderson, and I'm the Leader of Customer Happiness at Schoolzilla. I live in Oakland, CA, and outside of work, I love spending time with my wife and two kids (early teenage son, Jamal, and toddler, Samia), cooking, listening to audio books, and learning all about the history of K-12 education and emerging trends and best practices.

How I got into education
As a parent, my first-hand exposure to the array of challenges that both educators and students face is what triggered my interest in improving K-12 education. I've volunteered in the PTSA and SSC of my son's school, as well as mentored students in youth entrepreneurship programs over the years.
Why I'm here
I believe this community can become a tremendous resource for K-12 educators and data professionals, and empower the accelerated speed at which schools are able to leverage data to make decisions that will help students.
