Mr. Dunstan was an excellent and passionate teacher. His class sticks out to me distinctly in comparison with other high school classes. I keep many of the leasons he taught with me.

I had Mike as an English teacher my junior year of high school (2009). He is a very laid back teacher, easy to talk to, and he's super passionate about poetry and teaching English in general. He cared a ton about his students. He treated us as equals and adults, never as children.

Mike truly is invested and believes in his students. I recommend Mike because he was an incredible teacher to have. He impacted my life and taught me more than just English.

I don’t know if I could put into words how Mike has been a tremendous supporter as a teacher and now friend. As a student of his class, he demonstrated the importance of being respectful and hard working. He wanted us all to succeed as a class while also highlighting our own individual traits, which in my opinion is a hell of a juggling act that he made effortless. His ability to connect with students using humor and prospective made learning much more efficient rather than the typical model I’ve experienced with other teachers. He goes beyond what’s to be expected which results in others to exceed their expectations. This is a chain of events that is necessary for the world today and it starts with people like Mike at the forefront.

I was luckily enough to have Mr. Dunstan as a teacher in high school. From him, I learned what was mandatory from a curriculum standpoint but also walked away with invaluable life lessons. He has a unique ability to relate to his students and create a passion for learning as well as a level of respect.

Mr. Dunstan was my 10th grade English teacher. I highly recommend him, because he was one of the most influential teachers I’ve ever had! He truly impacts his students positively and does an amazing job of teaching them not only the subject but also very valuable life lessons. I enjoyed my time in his class and wish I could’ve had him as a teacher in college!

Mike Dunstan Is one of the 3 best teachers of my daughter’s entire academic career! He has an ability to relate to youth in a manner in which few teachers are capable. His sheer relatability enables him to pull more from his students, just because they WANT to please him! Due to anxiety, my daughter encountered “rough spots” with other teachers, but Mike always allowed her to run to his classroom to talk it out. His compassion for his students is a “forever thing,” reaching out beyond the time they are his personal students. I cannot recommend Mike highly enough! We had personally requested him to be her teacher in high school and we were beyond thrilled when she got him. You could never go wrong with Mike Dunstan!

Passionate and dedicated to his students. Kept class interesting, exciting, and always challenged us. Easy to talk to and overall a great guy!

Extremely down to earth and goes above and beyond to connect with students no matter their background. Inspiring and energetic classes even when the subject matter was not, and most importantly a trustworthy source to vent to at all times.

Mr. Dunstan was my 10th grade English teacher. I remember graduating high school and feeling so fortunate to have had him as a professor. His ability to make every individual student feel cared for and important was incredible. He taught English in a way that was never taught to me before. He always made the class challenging yet entertaining. His presence and passion as a teacher is admirable. I truly believe Mr. Dunstan is the root to why I fell in love with the English literature whether it was reading or writing. After going through 5 years of college and playing division one soccer I can confidently say Mr. Dunstan is one the best and most trustworthy role models out there today and anyone who get the chance to be taught by him is truly lucky.

Mr. D is definitely my favorite English teacher of all time. He made his class fun and interesting. He was just more relatable than other teachers at Freedom. I was excited to hear from my pinger sister that she would be having him for English. I told her that she would love his class and sure enough she did. Thanks Mr.D for being a great teacher!
