Here is our next teacher spotlight.  Mrs. Shaina Rands is our newest second grade teacher.  This is her official first year of teaching, but she interned.  Did you know that Mrs. Rands was at Brookside two years ago.  She was in an intern program at UVU and got to spend a couple days of each week in Miss White’s classroom.  We are so excited to welcome her back to Brookside!

What do you love to do on the weekend? Visit with family and friends, preferably in nature somewhere. 

If Mrs. Rands could eat lunch with any fictional character, she would choose: Junie B. Jones, they would laugh the whole time. 

Who was your favorite teacher and why? It was her High School P.E. teacher, he was my dad :)

If Mrs. Rands was given $1000 -  do you know what she would buy? Kitchen gadgets

What song would you sing at Karaoke night? 9 to 5

Who or what inspires you? Strangers helping other strangers/ random acts of kindness

Share a memory of school: When I was in fifth grade, my friends and I tried to start a band. We called ourselves Black Butterfly (yikes!) and when I was in 3rd grade we made California missions out of sugar cubes- that was fun! 

What is your favorite thing to teach every year? “I love read aloud time and teaching new math concepts.”

What is the best thing about your job? The people! I have the best students and kindest coworkers :)
