Dr. Anita Pandey is a free-spirited and charismatic educator, writer, researcher, and presenter who champions literacy and cultural diversity. Her eclectic background has undoubtedly impassioned her to become a driving force in the movement to promote intercultural communication and language development. Her strong commitment to early childhood education and dual language acquisition in schools is meritorious. Dr. Pandey is not only brilliant, but she is a consummate professional and her enthusiasm is infectious. No one will ever have an encounter with Dr. Pandey without learning something new and feeling empowered.

It is my privilege to endorse Dr. Anita Pandey. I have known her for at least fifteen years. I met her in Memphis, TN where she was my professor. From the very beginning, she offered encouragement and guidance. Later, we collaborated on a project which took us to Stanford. While in Memphis, Dr. Pandey worked with the Hispanic Institute and was a vital resource for its offered English courses. She is a kind friend who continually inspires me!

Endorsement from Howard County Resident & Campaign Manager for Anita Pandey for HoCo BOE:
Anita Pandey is an experienced and accomplished educator and parent of students in Howard County Public Schools. She is open to new and innovative ideas and methods, combining an emphasis on high standards and inclusion with state and local control and flexible implementation. I've also come to know Mrs. Pandey as a friend, someone who is generous and passionate about helping others and the field of Public Education. I believe she will be a great new member of the Howard County Board of Education.

Mama is also like my best friend. Her motto is "Do your best and forget the rest!" She points out our mistakes not to make us feel bad, but to make us better. While she sees the mistakes I made on a quiz, she also sees the mistakes made by the teacher grading it. She believes that culture and language are the windows to the soul. She's about as fluent in Spanish as Luis Fonsi. She helps every child and adult in need to English and driving, no matter how much sleep she loses in the night. She IS the voice of the people who have no mouths in this County
My name is Sahara, and I have a wonderful Mom who is always busy but still somehow finds a way to cook with/for us, watch movies with us, care for us, and still be out for her friends. Even though she gets angry sometimes, she will always find a place in her heart for us and you, and that is why I think you should vote for my mother, Anita Pandey. Thank you."
