Mrs. LeAnn Andrews

Mrs. LeAnn Andrews is one of the amazing teachers at Brookside, teaching some of our fourth graders.  She is in her 21st year of teaching.  She is an amazing mentor, coach, friend and teacher. She will help out anyone who asks, she is a great listener and gives some good advice, and she is willing to help her teammates (who are new to fourth grade).  LeAnn is a no-nonsense type of teacher but everyone of her students knows that she loves them and cares about them.  We love having LeAnn as part of our Brookside family.

Mrs. Andrews graduated from Cyprus High School.  and graduated from Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah.  She started teaching 6th grade at Juab Middle school for two years.  Then, she taught fourth, first and second grades for four years here at Brookside.  After 13 years off, I came back to teach fourth grade at Brookside again in 2008. I am always learning new things!

LeAnn grew up in Magna, Utah.  She is the oldest of 5.  She went to college in Cedar City, Utah and met her husband, Ron, in Cedar City.  They live in Spanish Fork and raised four children.  She now has seven grandkids plus four extra bonus grandkids that she calls my own. LeAnn likes to read, watch movies and sew in her spare time. She hopes to go to Australia after she retires.  She loves the mountains, Pepsi Zero Sugar, popcorn, Good 'n Plenty, and anything chocolate.
