About Ms. Rumsey

Welcome to Kindergarten! I have a passion for teaching and can’t imagine working with any other grade.  To quote a kindergartner on the first day of school, “Kindergarten rocks!”

I grew up in Arlington, Texas and am the youngest of three .  I love being Aunt Joy to my sweet niece and cherish time I get to spend with her and the rest of my family.  I come from a long line of teachers following in the footsteps of my grandmother, mother, aunts and cousins. Early on I knew teaching young kiddos was my calling.

I graduated from Baylor University with Bachelor’s in Education and earned a Master’s in Education at Southern Methodist University.  I began my teaching career in Irving and Richardson before coming to Highland Park. I can honestly say there is no place I’d rather be than right here at UP.  I am honored to be part of a school so rich in tradition.
