Principal John Anderson
Welcome back to North Cache!
The best thing about working in education is surrounding myself with people who care about children and care about making a difference their lives. I am excited to be working at North Cache and the opportunity to make North Cache the best educational experience possible for the students who will attend there.
My wife, children and now my grandchild are the greatest blessings in my life. As a family we each love spending time with one another, like the outdoors and leading an active lifestyle. My wife relishes being a grandmother, a mother and enjoys working at USU as Marketing Director for the College of Agriculture. My daughter and her husband are both graduates from Utah State University and now enjoy being new parents and working at and building their family business. My son and his newlywed bride are both students and will be spending several months this year in the Dominican Republic serving an at-risk population through the Huntsman School of Business SEED program at Utah State University.
I strive to live the "Life Is Good" philosophy because I truly believe life is good! Jake and his faithful dog Rocket are the characters of this company and depict how we can find enjoyment in the simple things of our lives. I also live by the philosophy that one should leave the world a better place than when you showed up. It is my hope that the children in my life turn out better than I did--my own children and the children that I get to work with. If I can impact them in that way then life will be good and the world will be a better place.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, skiing, playing in the water, mountain and road cycling, tennis, running, hiking, and anything else that allows me to be active outside. When the conditions are not quite perfect outside I remind myself that if you wait for perfect conditions, you’ll never go! The same holds true in our lives, if we wait for the perfect setting, we will never get anything done.
Being an educator has increased my family from a handful of loved ones to thousands of children who bless my life every day! I am truly grateful to live and work here in Cache Valley!
