Mr. Rumsey

      Hello. My name is Daniel Rumsey and I am happy to be a teacher for my 6th year at Highland Park Senior High School. I am a lifelong resident of St. Paul and I grew up in the Highland Park neighborhood, attending Holy Spirit Grade School and Cretin High School.

     I have a Masters Degree in Special Education from the University of St. Thomas and an Urban Teacher Certificate from Hamline University. I hold licensures in ASD, EBD, and ABS. This is my 17th year working in the district: 6 years as a TA and now my 11th year as a teacher. Prior to working in education, I was a cook, a chef, and a piano technician.

     I am married and have 2 adult daughters. We live in the Hamline/Midway neighborhood with 2 awesome cats. I am also a musician who appreciates all the arts and I do my best to bring art and music into my classroom. My hobbies include gardening, cooking, reading, and woodworking. Please feel free to contact me before or after school at 651-744-4682 or any time at
