Welcome to Andersen Junior High! My name is Miss Gorke and I am going to be your General Art teacher for this year. I am super excited to have you as my student! Lets have a great year!!

My Education and Professional Background

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education from Arizona State University. Forks UP! Believe it or not, I have been in CUSD since I was in Elementary school! So I could not wait to work in the school district I grew up in.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that we should never put down our crayons and stop creating. Students should have a space to be exactly who they ARE, and feel safe and encouraged to do so. In life, I believe you can only be happy when you are being you and no one else.

The Choice is Yours!  Why Choose AJHS?

There are many reasons Andersen Junior High is a top choice. AJHS has received the A+ rating for multiple years. We are always dedicated to the child's success and centered around helping the students. My biggest appeal to this school is the opportunity's it presents to be a part of something. On this campus, you can find clubs and students who share the same interest and hobbies. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly so it is easy to make friends.
