Brockbank's staff spotlights this week are Mrs. Larina Quispe and Mrs. Cleo Cox.

Mrs. Larina Quispe teaches fourth grade. She and her husband live in Spanish Fork and together they have two sons and two daughters. Larina likes making watch bands, organizing, going to dinner and movies with friends, and spending time with her family. Some of her favorites are the color purple, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Peruvian food, country music, romantic comedies, eating at Bajio (so sad the Spanish Fork one closed), and watching soccer. Larina's favorite vacation destination is to Disneyland (she recently got to go to Disney World in Florida and to Disneyland within a couple of months of each other - lucky lady!). Something not everyone knows about her is that her family gets to go on a paid vacation almost every summer with her parents! Larina is currently on her 9 year teaching fourth-grade at Brockbank. Larina is a great teacher, has a great sense of humor, and is a friend to everyone!

Mrs. Cleo Cox is a foster grandma in Mrs. Lisa Bird's first-grade class. Cleo lives in Spanish Fork and has one son, two daughters, 10 grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren (with 2 more on the way). She enjoys doing crafts, making quilts, sewing, painting, reading, cooking, and dancing. Some of her favorites are the color yellow, chocolate, water, singer Charlie Rich, Book of Mormon, the movie, "Gone With the Wind", BYU basketball, and eating at Dalton's. Cleo's vacation destination is to go to England. Something she said no one knows about her is that when she was 18 years old she had a 19" waist! This is Cleo's 3rd year as a foster grandma at Brockbank. Before coming to Brockbank she worked at Mountain Bell for 20 years, Nature Sunshine for 13 years, for Dr. Hanson for 2 years, and at the Girl's Home for 1 year. Cleo always has a positive attitude and is such a sweet lady, we are so glad she is at Brockbank!
