Mr. Rumsey

      Hi. My name is Dan Rumsey and I am happy to be a teacher 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. This is my 12th year working in the district: 6 years as a TA and now my 6th year as a teacher. Prior to working in education, I was a cook, a chef, and a piano technician.

     I live in the Hamline/Midway neighborhood with my wife, 2 daughters and 2 cats. I am 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 at 651-744-4682 or at
