My Education and Professional Background
My name is John Bundy, and I am from New Mexico. Currently, I work as an English teacher for 11th and 9th grades. I have been teaching for eight years. Additionally, I serve as the head coach for Girls Beach Volleyball. Over the years, I have also taught History, including AP, Physical Education (including weights), and coached Boys and Girls Basketball as well as Indoor Volleyball.

Assessments serve as tools for understanding and improvement. By emphasizing relevance, individualized approaches and some humor I inspire student motivation, creativity, and problem-solving abilities.
