Welcome to Mrs. Bunten's page! Hello! My name is Maggie Bunten, and this is my eleventh year in education. I began my career as a second grade teacher in Joplin, Missouri - my hometown. After relocating to Columbia, Missouri to start my Master's program, I was hired to teach second grade during the opening year of Alpha Hart Lewis Elementary. After three years, finishing my Master's and beginning the ELPA program to complete my Ed.S, I transferred to Grant Elementary where I taught third grade. My passion for infusing technology into my curriculum grew that year so much that I accepted a position as an Instructional Technology Specialist district-wide. My passion for technology in the classroom remains, and I have landed the most perfect job - the Library Media Specialist here at West Middle School. I'm so happy to be a Viking!
