Ms. MaryJenn Bradford

Today’s spotlight is on one of our fantastic third grade teachers, Ms. MaryJenn Bradford. She is in her 35th year of teaching!  She is an amazing friend, teammate, coworker and teacher. She is always smiling, laughing and ready to help.  Her students love her and she is always always going above and beyond to make sure her students are understanding.  We love having MaryJenn in our Brookside family.

Ms. Bradford graduated from Spanish Fork High School.  She attended University of Utah earning her BSS with an emphasis in physical education and she graduated from Southern University of Utah with her Masters.  MaryJenn also has a math endorsement and her proudest achievement is being 8th grade ping pong champ!

MaryJenn grew up in Spanish Fork. She has two girls and two boys. They are all married and in college or career fields. Two of her children are also teachers. She has four grandkids with one more on the way. Her hobbies are…golfing and art. Her favorite place to be is in a plane, with some Biscoff cookies in her hand, on her way to England.
