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 heading off to their freshman year in 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 venture into this new position as EL teacher and look forward to working with these students and their families. I have inherited a wonderful new community and I am anxious to see what the future holds.
