Neighbor to Neighbor: Keith Andersen

Family: Keith’s wife is Mona and they have a son, Jeremy, who is eight. Keith also has three older children.

You know Keith as the manufacturing technology teacher at McNary High School. Specifically, he teaches electronics, robotics and metal fabrication. Keith also is the school’s head coach for cross country and the distance coach for track and field. He began teaching at McNary in 2000.

If I wasn’t a teacher, I’d be an electrician or electrical technician. “I find electricity fascinating, but handle with care.”

When I was in high school: My teachers thought I was a good kid most of the time.

The last CD I istened to: Fire Fall

Something people don’t know about me: I enjoy writing poems and songs.

A favorite childhood memory: Riding on my favorite horse through 500 acres of fields and timber at top speed. Feeling the wind on my face and the surge of strength underneath me.
