ST. CLE­MENT'S SCHOOL

The Kids Post - - Registry of Educators - MARK BUNTEN GRADE 9 LINCWELL COUN­SEL­LOR

Start­ing in Septem­ber, Mark Bunten will be tak­ing on a new role as the new Grade 9 LINC Well coun­sel­lor. With both prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence and a masters de­gree in coun­selling psy­chol­ogy, Bunten’s pas­sion for the field is sure to be a ben­e­fit. For­merly the so­cial sci­ences cur­ricu­lum and depart­ment leader, Bunten has al­ways been guided by the phi­los­o­phy that learn­ing should be fun, and en­gage stu­dents on more than just the cog­ni­tive level. “Whether it be de­sign think­ing, mind­ful med­i­ta­tion, learn­ing con­ver­sa­tions, busi­ness cases or an­other va­ri­ety of ways of ap­proach­ing ideas, my stu­dents are en­cour­aged to ex­plore the bound­aries of what they know, use in­no­va­tive tools to in­ter­pret ideas and in­for­ma­tion and en­gage with the world around them,” he ex­plains. Bunten has also fo­cused on con­tribut­ing to the co-cur­ric­u­lar pro­gram in busi­ness stud­ies. St. Cle­ment’s School now host its own busi­ness case com­pe­ti­tion and com­petes in a va­ri­ety of ex­ter­nal events in­clud­ing SIFMA’s stock mar­ket chal­lenge - where last year two of their stu­dent teams placed se­cond and third in the world. “Th­ese op­por­tu­ni­ties have en­riched our school and the op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents to ex­cel in the world of com­merce and busi­ness out­side of our doors.”
