My name in Mona Glover and I teach First Grade here at Werner. I have been teaching at Werner for about 15 years now and have taught Literacy, Fourth grade, Kindergarten, and this is my eighth year in First Grade. I was born in Iowa City, Iowa and attended Lincoln Elementary, Central Jr. High, and West High School there. I went to the University of Iowa and then got my masters degree from Santa Clara University. I taught for 7 years in California-mostly Kindergarten and First grade. Then moved to Colorado. I taught a year of Kindergarten in Berthoud and then took several years off to be with my children. I have three kids: Jeff and his wife, Megan, live in Venture, California. Mitch, my youngest, is in Burbank, California, and Lauren lives in Seattle. My husband, Scott, works at HP. I love to spend time with my family, cook, and read all kinds of books in my free time. I am looking forward to getting to know all of my classroom families this year and see the tremendous growth the First Graders make.
