Gunnarson, Luke.jpg
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Luke Gunnarson has a unique academic past that informs his approach to kids from all backgrounds. From teaching kindergarten in Korea, to freshman writing at Montana State, to several years of high school classroom instruction, Luke has worked with many age groups and demographics. His interest in education started when he began volunteering at an after school "homework house" while he was a student at Azusa Pacific University.
As a reflective educator, he is not content with accepting things as they are; he wants to challenge students to be the best they can be. Outside of school, he enjoys hanging out with his family, raising a toddler, swimming, and "iron chef" culinary creations. As a Baker Web Academy teacher, Luke enjoys building English courses and is as passionate as ever about helping students write with confidence.
