Assistant Principal

Hi! I’m John Dumbleton, and I am brand-new to Yale Elementary this year! I am so excited to start my first year as an AP at Yale, and I cannot wait to meet and get to know everyone in our community! I’ve been an educator since the 2006-2007 school year, and I have worked in Aurora Public Schools for seven years. During my time in APS, I’ve worked as a middle school literacy teacher, as an instructional coach, and as a secondary literacy instructional coordinator for the district. When I’m not working on being the best teacher and leader I can be, I love spending time with my wife, Michael, and our three sons.

I believe in the power of education and in the power within students. As a leader, I am committed to building a partnership with Yale's students, Yale's families, and Yale's educators to create a learning environment that is grounded in justice, educational equity, and authentic relationships. I am honored to join Yale's community of educators!

Please feel free to contact me at any time:
