About Mrs. Bungard:  I am originally from Ohio but went to college in the mountains of Tennessee. My husband is a professor of Classics at Butler, which is what brought us to Indiana. I did outdoor education for several years before moving inside to teach. When not at school, I enjoy spending time with my two curious and daredevil daughters. My hobbies include hiking, swimming, reading, visiting new places, baking, and exploring new ways to understand math.
