Miriam Bungert

Ms. Bungert is a graduate of Minneapolis Public Schools and has invested 20 years working with youth and families in Minneapolis. Outside of her work with youth and families, Ms. Bungert is a busy mother of two sons whose experience ground her own work with youth leadership and education. She likes to travel out of the Twin Cities to visit her sisters in San Diego and New York City. She loves live music and learning about new places to eat in Minneapolis.


Through her work as an educator formerly at FAIR School Downtown, Ms. Bungert believes in using art and literacy as a catalyst for engagement in learning, and a passion for equity and student voice drive her work. Building on her experience working with middle and high school students and developing the first Minneapolis Mayor’s Youth Council in 1998, Ms. Bungert launched a new class for freshman called PREP at Southwest in 2014.

1. AVID Elective, Class of 2021, Southwest High School

2. U.S. History, Southwest High School

3. Univeristy of Minnesota, College of Education and Human Development, Adjunct Faculty, Dual Language and Immersion Licensure
