7th/8th Language Arts

Mr. Wagner

Mr. Wagner comes to us from an eclectic background of military service, private security, and government employment. He chose to go to college later in life in order to give back to the community through teaching. He graduated from Metro State University (Go Roadrunners!) and teaches English, Yearbook, Writing, and Band. When he's not teaching, you can find him reading, writing, hiking, playing music, skateboarding, and cooking (generally not at the same time).

7th/8th Math

Mr. Crampton

I am the Upper School math teacher, Trevor Crampton, with a degree in High School Education, focusing on Mathematics and Spanish Language Acquisition. I have been a teacher at Vanguard Classical School for nearly 3 years and love getting to see students grow both emotionally and mentally as they strive to do better in classes. The staff around me has truly helped me to become a better teacher as they have guided me through the many trials of Middle School teaching. In my first year here, I assisted with coaching flag football and took on the role of a soccer coach in the spring. My other passion which I have brought to this school is my Dungeons and Dragons Club to help students build reasoning and communication skills.

7th/8th Science

Ms. Urbanek

Ms. Urbanek is the Science teacher for the 7th and 8th grade at Vanguard West. She grew up on a dairy farm in West-Central Wisconsin. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Agriscience Education at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. This is her second year teaching and her first year at Vanguard. When she is not teaching, she enjoys hiking, traveling, and playing pickleball.

7th/8th History

Ms. Bishop

Mrs. Bishop is the History teacher for 7th and 8th grade at Vanguard West. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education with a concentration in Social Science at the University of Tampa in Tampa, Florida, where she is from. This is Mrs. Bishop's fourth year of teaching, and all four years have been at charter schools. She taught for one year in Tampa, and then started at Vanguard East when she moved to Denver with her husband. She chose to teach because she loves working with kids and young adults, and wants to make history fun and exciting to learn about!

7th/8th EA

Mr. Fundi

Hi, My name is Rehani Fundi from East Africa. I moved to Denver a few years ago, and it has been one of the best cities I have lived in. I’m looking forward to getting to know students and parents at Vanguard Classical School. I like playing sports such as soccer, basketball, also football. I’m always looking for an opportunity to be active. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I speak Swahili and English fluently, currently pursuing my Bachelor's degree in Doctrines and Methodology of Education.
