Case Anderson is a Middle School English teacher at Landon School. Prior to that, he was a high school English and writing teacher at Commonwealth Academy in Alexandria, Virginia. During the school year, he coaches Middle School wrestling and 8th grade baseball. He has hiked in many of the great national parks of the American West — including Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Canyon, Arches, Zion and Canyonlands — while studying the geology of that region. He also recently hiked the Camino de Santiago trail in Spain.
Fun fact: Mr. Anderson majored in English in college, but he almost majored in geology.
Justin Roman is a licensed social worker and is currently Landon’s Lower and Middle School counselor. He played collegiate baseball at Washington Adventist University and continues to play baseball in an adult recreational league.
Fun fact: Justin is an avid Baltimore Orioles and Ravens fan!
