Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Chuck Gunsten and this is my second year teaching 4th grade at Global Arts Plus. ! I’ve spent the past 10 years teaching 4th, 5th, and 6th grade between Jackson Elementary and Groveland Park Elementary. Before that I taught 5th and 6th grade in Bloomington and Seattle for several years. My wife Molly and I are both St. Paul natives and graduates of St. Paul Public Schools. We live in the neighborhood just a few blocks away! I have three children: Maeve who is 13 and is entering 8th grade at Capitol Hill, Walter who is 10 years old and is entering 5th grade also at Capitol Hill, and our youngest son Declan, 4, who is starting Pre-K at Galtier.
I have been a teacher for over 15 years, and I am very passionate about education. I love teaching 4th grade and I’m very excited to return to a 4th grade classroom this year. When I am not teaching, I love traveling with my family, camping, and watching Minnesota Sports.
I am excited to begin the process of getting to know the families, students, and staff at Global Arts! Please feel to contact me at any point with any questions.
