I graduated from Snow College (Associate degree), University of Utah (Bachelor’s degree), and Utah State University (Master’s degree) with an emphasis in gifted and early childhood education. I’ve taught fifth grade, second grade, kindergarten, and third grade. Third grade is my favorite grade to teach and I love being here at Westbrook! I am married to a wonderful (and very funny) guy. We have seven children and eleven grandchildren who are spread out all over the United States. We currently have four children in college - one is finishing up his PhD in Aerospace Engineering. I must give a shout out to the best stage of life though: being a grandparent! Grandchildren reign supreme in our family and are the joy of my life right now! I love to read - especially science fiction. In addition to reading, I love swimming, snorkeling, eating sushi, riding my bike, writing poetry, practicing yoga, playing guitar, listening to TED talks, and especially supporting my children and grandchildren (and extended family) in dance, piano, theater, and almost every sport imaginable!

Mrs. Anna-Lisa Glad has enjoyed 10 years of teaching in many different areas. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education from Brigham Young University – Hawaii. After teaching a year of High School, however, she had a change of heart and got a Master’s in Elementary Education from the University of New Mexico. She was born, bred, and married to Kevin Glad in Albuquerque. She has been in Utah since 2001 and loves everything except the cold! Her love of skiing makes up for that. She has four children (one older and three younger) that keep her plenty busy after school hours. And in her free time, she loves a capella singing competitively with a quartet and a women’s show choirs (Sweet Adelines). Pasta is her food of choice, chocolate always soothes the soul, and the color yellow always keeps her looking to the bright side of life. She loves the community at Westbrook and sees herself here for a very long time.

I graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I have since completed an Early Childhood Endorsement from The University of Utah and an ESL endorsement from Weber State. I raised a family of seven children, and taught preschool in my home until my youngest child was in school. I then started substituting. I was substituting at Westbrook one day when the principal came to observe me. She called me out in the hall and offered me a job teaching Kindergarten. I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, Third Grade and now Second Grade. I love teaching at Westbrook. On a personal note I have 13 grandchildren! I love camping, hiking, crocheting, watching old musicals and playing with my grandchildren. I love to read now but I didn’t as a child. As a teacher I hope to instill the love of reading into the lives of the children I teach. I look forward to associating with your children this year.

I have been in education for 21 years. I taught first grade for 12 years and was a staff developer for a different district for 4 years. One of the most fun parts of my career was teaching first grade students who struggled in reading to enjoy and be able to read. I did this with the Reading Recovery Program. I became a Reading Interventionist/Literacy Coach for 5 years in the Granite School District. I have been privileged to be at Westbrook either part or full time for all 5 of those years. I received my Bachelors of Education from BYU, sorry Ute fans. I have a Master of Education from Southern Utah University and I have four teaching endorsements which include English as a Second Language, Technology, Reading Level One, and Reading Level Two. The first three from Southern Utah University and the Level Two Reading from Utah State. When I was teaching first grade, I knew I needed to know more to be successful as a reading teacher. It was definitely worth it getting more education on the teaching of reading. I loved first graders and have since learned to love all the grades. All ages bring varied and interesting experiences to a classroom. I will have been married to my husband for 40 years on October 8 of this year, 2016. We have six children and 10 grandchildren. I love reading and I absolutely enjoy cooking. My favorite genre is cookbooks, and then historical fiction.
