 JEN BEARMAN
 jabearman2@dcsdk12.org Hi, my name is Jen Bearman. This will be my sixth year teaching at Stone Mountain, and I am excited to be in 3rd Grade this year! I grew up in Colorado, but went to Southern California to go to school at Azusa Pacific University. That was where I met my husband, Brian. We moved back to CO 16 years ago, and now have two daughters. Kaitlyn will be leaving for her Freshman year at Grand Canyon University, and Ella is a Sophomore at Rock Canyon HS. This will be my 10th year with Douglas County, and my 14th year in education. Over the years I have substituted for K-8 and taught Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 3rd Grade, and 4th Grade. I am so glad to call SME home.

 WHITNEY HUMPHREY
 whitney.olson@dcsdk12.org Hi! My name is Whitney Humphrey. I’m starting my 8th year at SME and fourth year in 3rd grade. SME is my home & I can’t imagine teaching anywhere else. I have a Bachelor of Education & a Master of Arts in Curriculum Instruction & Design. I LOVE learning & trying new things in the world of education. Last year I completed my Google Certification, level 1. I am a huge animal lover & work with 3 friends running a small animal rescue. (Ya know, in all my free time). I have 2 dogs , a Golden Retriever (Bentley), a Shepherd Mix (Kaya), and a kitty (Gunner). My husband, Brandon and I will be celebrating our second anniversary this September. We are huge CO sports lovers! We also love to camp & spend time outside! I’m known for being a big sap & am as sarcastic as they come. I'm looking forward to another amazing school year at SME

 aokerstrom@dcsdk12.org Welcome to third grade! This is my fifth year at SME. I started working here as an educational assistant, taught fourth grade for two years, and this is my second year teaching third grade. Teaching is my passion and I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of this amazing staff. I grew up in the Chicago area and after graduating from Northern Illinois University, I taught fourth grade for 8 years. I took some time off from teaching to be a stay at home mom for my kids. I have a son who is an eighth grader at Ranch View Middle School and a daughter who is going into sixth grade at Coyote Creek. I look forward to a wonderful school year and working with you and your child!

 bunger@dcsdk12.org Hello! I was born and raised in Highlands Ranch, and even graduated from TRHS. Go Grizzlies! A true Colorado girl at heart, I have my degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Colorado. I have a wonderful fiancé named Dillon and a very energetic three-year-old puppy named Ellie. In my free time, I love to run, do yoga, be outdoors, travel, watch movies, and cheer on my favorite football team (the Denver Broncos of course!).
