Hello! My name is Laura Propst, and I am incredibly excited to begin the 2023-2024 school year with all of you at Bell Intermediate. I began my career in GGUSD as an English teacher at Pacifica High School in 2005, and taught almost every level of English, all levels of AVID, and World History in my ten years serving that campus. I then moved to the District Office for five years as a Teacher on Special Assignment supporting the areas of English, ELD, and History, as well as supporting new and veteran teachers at Bolsa Grande and Pacifica High Schools. This school year marks my 19th year in Education, and my fourth year as an administrator.
Mrs. Bartlett and I are very excited to open this new school year with a continued focus on GGUSD's Strategic Plan Goals: Academic Skills, Personal Skills, and Lifelong Success. At Bell, we are dedicated to ensuring all students have access to a relevant and challenging curriculum, while also being provided the support they may need in order to excel. We know that instruction through the lens of each of these goals will prepare students for the exciting future that lies beyond the K-12 classroom.
My goal as your assistant principal is to help guide you through this foundational period of your secondary school career. You will be challenged academically and socially in different ways, and I will be here to support you as you navigate intermediate school. My hope is that when you come to our campus, you feel welcomed, successful, and safe; I will do everything in my power to ensure that is the case for all students.
I am very much looking forward to meeting all of our new Roadrunners, as well as continuing to make memories with those returning to our campus. Please feel free to contact me or stop by my office if you have any needs, or if you would just like to say hello.
It’s going to be a great year!
