Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Chuck Gunsten and this is my third year teaching 4th grade at Global Arts Plus! I have been teaching in St. Paul Public Schools since 2011. 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 14 and is entering 9th grade at my alma mater Central, Walter who is 11 years old and is starting middle school at Capitol Hill, and our youngest son Declan, 5, who will be here in Ms. Cruz's kindergarten class!
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 be in a 4th grade classroom this year again. 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 and students from my classroom this year! Please feel to contact me at any point with any questions.
