About The Teacher
Hi, my name is Bill Bumphrey. I am a native New Mexican and grew up here in Albuquerque. I have both a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education and a Master of Education Degree. I have a Level Three-A Instructional Leader Teaching License and I am "Highly Qualified" to teach Mathematics, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science in the Middle School setting. I am married to a wonderful woman who also works for APS at Volcano Vista High School. I have three awesome grown children and two wonderful grandkids. My philosophy of education is that every student can succeed in life, but they all do it in different ways. I believe that learning is social, so students will often work in groups to solve problems and develop inquiry skills. I do, however, hold students individually accountable for meeting classroom and individual goals.
