Hello, my name is John Dungey from St. Paul Minnesota.  I’ve been an employee of Saint Paul Public Schools over ten years.  During the regular school year, I work as the Flipside coordinator at Battle Creek Middle School and during the summer term, I work for Freedom School.  I enjoy building relationships with young scholars. My goal is to expand the minds of the youth.
