Mrs. Laurel Bumpus

I'm so happy to be a part of PLES.

After receiving my teaching degree from the University of Northern Colorado, I worked for 11 years in Harrison District at Stratmoor Hills Elementary as a 2nd grade teacher and then as a Title 1 teacher. During that time, I earned my masters from Adams State University. I married the cutest guy ever, and then had twin boys, Chris and Alex. At that time, I stopped to be at home with them. When they were in Kindergarten, I had the privilege of being a tutor and then substitute teacher in District 11. Those baby boys are now off to college. Yikes! How did that happen?!

For the past six years at PLES I was a reading interventionist and absolutely loved my job and my teammates. I am excited to now be in the position as EL teacher and look forward to working with  these students and their families. I get to work with a wonderful new community and I am anxious to see what the future holds.
