Brockbank's Laurel Koyle and Byron Villaverde Retire!

Brockbank Elementary News - Thu, 05/14/2015 - 10:28pm

 

We are so happy for Mrs. Laurel Koyle, who is retiring! She has taught second grade at Brockbank for 28 years. Before coming to Brockbank, Laurel taught preschool for 5 years, and first grade for 2 years at the Lake Shore School. She and her husband live in Spanish Fork, and have two sons, two daughters, and seventeen grandchildren. Laurel likes listening to country music, playing the piano, reading, attending the musical theater (Broadway), traveling, and most of all spending time with her family. She said she likes to cook when she has to, but loves to eat out; two of her favorite places to eat are Olive Garden and Joe Vera's. Laurel's favorites are the color pink, Peanut M&M's, Snickers, Mexican Food, Diet Coke with Lime, cookies, and the movie, "Beauty and the Beast." She enjoys baseball and watching the Spanish Fork Dons. Her favorite vacation destinations are Snowbird and Hawaii. Laurel has taught second grade at Brockbank for 28 years. Before coming to Brockbank, Laurel is a true "Brockbank Bronco" not only because she has been teaching here so long, but also because when she was a child she attended Brockbank. In fact, her dad was her teacher in fifth grade. Something Laurel said no one knows about her is that her dad taught her how to fly an airplane by herself before she learned to drive a car! Amazing! We are going to miss her tremendously but wish her the best in her retirement! 

Mr. Byron Villaverde has been the speech therapist at Brockbank for the past thirteen years. Besides working at Brockbank he also works at Spanish Fork Junior High.  He has worked at several different schools in the district during his career. He and his wife live in Salem, and have one son, one daughter, and four grandchildren. Byron likes fishing, hunting, four-wheeling, drawing, and just being a grandpa. Some of his favorites are the color blue, Almond Joys, ribs, listening to soft rock and the oldies, the movie, "Stand and Deliver," and eating Chinese food at Ho Ho's.  Something no one knows about Byron is that he met his wife while they were both serving missions in the Philippines. Also he raises and sells registered labs.  He is a quiet man but has quite a sense of humor. We are so glad that he has been a part of our staff here at Brockbank and we will miss him but wish him the best in his retirement!

Jane Wilson, a sixth-grade student in Shana Huffaker’s sixth-grade class at Art City Elementary in Springville, Utah, was noticed for her fine art work that was completed in the monthly art program (The Great Artist Program) where parent helpers came to teach. Claudia Jex, visual art curriculum specialist,  said she noticed Jane’s talent and sent some of her artwork to the Crayola Company.  Crayola provides an art contest for students from Kindergarten through twelfth grade. Crayola representatives chose Jane’s talent to be included in their exhibit around the nation. Jane was able to choose her own art work titled, "Peaches From a Farm" done in Crayola oil pastels. Jane’s piece will be on display in the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C. and their offices around the country. Jane used yellow construction paper and Crayola oil pastels.  Crayola Oil Pastels lay down bright, vivid opaque color that blends to a true secondary color. The stick is designed for children; is jumbo sized for longer lasting uses and hexagonal so it does not roll off desks. The tapered point is ideal for detail drawing. Jane did this work of art during the great artist program; pta parents came into the classrooms once a month and taught about specific artists known throughout history Jane’s picture was based on a still life artist, Paul Cezanne, which was displayed in the gym at the book fair family night.
