Bunzey's 1st Grade Beavers

I am so excited to be starting my teaching career in Chapel Hill at Estes Hills Elementary School. This is my first year teaching. I grew up in Raleigh, NC and lived there my whole life until moving to Wilmington to go to college. I graduated in May of 2015 with a degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Behavioral Studies and a minor in Spanish. I did my student teaching in a kindergarten classroom at Ogden Elementary in Wilmington and absolutely loved it. Before I became a teacher, I worked for the A.E. Finley YMCA in Raleigh for six years. That is where I met my husband, when I was 16, and we got married on August 1, 2015. That is why my email still says Mitterling but all of my students call me Mrs. Bunzey! My husband Tyler works for UNC in the Athletics Department and also teaches 11th grade English in Wake County at Leesville Road High School.

I grew up in Winston-Salem and I went to UNC-Chapel Hill where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Literacy Education.  For three years, I worked as a reading specialist in Orange County Schools.  For the following five years, I taught first grade in Orange County Schools.  For seven years, I was at home in Durham raising my three children and teaching education courses at two local community colleges on a part-time basis.  I returned to teaching 7 years ago at Estes Hills.  I have 4 children: Shelby (14), Will (13), Jack (11), and Jenna Kate (1). My husband, Jon, teaches at Riverside High School in Durham. I am so excited to get to know your families this year!
