Meet our Principal: Loren Engel

Welcome to the Mr. Engel page at Beitel Elementary School! Our elementary school includes children from around Washington Park, Corthell Hill, and both sides of Grand Avenue near the Laramie Wal-Mart. We are a small school of 235+ kiddos and some really neat adults.

I very much enjoy being the principal of this fantastic school! Beitel Bulldogs do difficult things and keep working even when things get hard. We are proud of our efforts and our achievement! Bulldogs can be found volunteering and performing  in the Laramie community all throughout the year. We help to make our home a better place.

Both Tanya Engel and I came to Laramie from the State of Washington in 2011. We quickly found a home among friendly people and talented professionals. Both our son and daughter are students at the University of Wyoming. Mrs. Engel and I have also become graduate students at UW. I trust that you will find educational opportunities in Laramie to be high-quality and easy to access just as we have.

Since our arrival I’ve learned to ski, started riding a motorcycle, and have been a local football referee since 2012. We enjoy Laramie and all that it has to offer very much!


Please do feel free to contact me with questions or thoughts about our school.
