Welcome to Mr. Gunkelman's Homepage

Thanks for stopping by my page!

Well, I start with some background information… I received my undergraduate degree in Chemistry Education from Moorhead State University and my Master’s degree in Science Education from North Dakota State University. I previously taught in Maddock, ND where I WAS the science department. While there I taught 7th grade life science, 8th grade Earth science, 9th grade physical science, chemistry and physics. I also coached the girls and boys golf team, the Science Fair team, and was the assistant boys basketball coach. You could say I had a pretty full plate!

I took the job in Hawley during the summer of 2005 and have enjoyed my employment here ever since! I currently teach high school chemistry, physics, applied physics and 9th grade physical science. I also am the head girls golf coach, head Science Olympiad coach, and assistance Knowledge Bowl coach. I have also volunteered as a boys basketball coach and served as a PaY advisor. I absolutely love living and working in Hawley!
