Karen Bungard was my teacher in the 80's. I have not seen her since then. At the time I thought she was possibly too hard and demanding. Now, 35+ years later, after going all the way to a doctorate degree, I realize she is great part of my success. I would recommend her to every parent and to every student that wants to succeed.

She is very nice and describes in detail things that other teachers overlook like the revolutionary war. She describes everything in a lot of detail so you really feel smarter at the end of the day. She is a great teacher and I recommend her to any student

She taught my son several years ago and I always felt she did a tremendous job relating to both students and parents. He preparation and level of caring are two things I have remembered to this day. It is wonderful to see she is still there and that her rating is at the very top of the scale. She deserves it.

Bungard is super enthusiastic about teaching which is great, but she gets distracted easily and talks wayyy too much about her personal life. One time she spent 40 minutes talking about kneading bread. She doesn't prepare you at all for honors english in hs (because lack of teaching technical writing) so be aware of that. All in all she tries her best but I don't remember any history she taught. She has an interesting personality...I'm surprising myself but sometimes I miss this crazy lady

Okay teacher. Just okay. Didn't learn much because 98 percent of class time was spent when she talked about a) her riveting seaglassing adventures b) her new purchases from Nordstroms c) absolutely every last detail of her absolutely exciting weekend, or d) bragging about how she was the best grammar teacher at the school. Almost fell asleep every class because all she did was talk about her personal life.

She was probably a good teacher at one point, but I don't remember any of the curriculum, but I do remember ever single story about her personal life she would take up at least half of class time telling. She is knowledgable about history and grammar, but she tries too much to cram info into the classtime she wasted talking about her weekend. I progressivly got sick of her throughout the year, and hated being stuck in her class for 90 minutes a day, and talking to her is painfully uncomfortable.

She is one of the only teachers on campus that actually teach you stuffnyou need to know, but that's only for grammar and vocabulary. I give her credit for my 100%s in the grammar portion of my PSAT. She really doesn't teach much reading comprehension and analysis stuff. I appreciate her effort trying to make class more interesting and fun; I have to admit I love her projects. Her class is hard though! My grades were a roller coaster! Okay teacher, but not the best person. No time management.

Ms. Bungard was a great teacher and really gave it her all. She was genuinely interested in what she taught. Her skits and displays were entertaining. Ms. Bungard also gave great modern-day examples which helped a lot. Also, she would help you one-on-one on her own time. Thanks!!

Ms. Bungard teaches well. She really cares about what she teaches. Overall, she is nice. Sometimes I don't blend with her personality though. She has a very strong personality that can be offensive at times, and she spends a lot of time talking about her life (we normally run out of class time). I think she feels the need to prove herself to us. However, she always means well. I'm glad she's my teacher.

Miss Bungard is the best teacher I have ever had. She made class so much fun and easy while we still learned a ton of things. I love how Miss Bungard was always so enthusiastic and confident with her job. I wish more people knew how amazing she is. Her class was very fun because she always told hilarious stories. I learned so many life long lessons being in her class academically and socially. Hopefully you will be blessed enough to have Miss Bungard as your teacher. Best teacher of my life.
