Ms. Rachel Shuman

AP English 4 Teacher

Howdy! My name is Rachel Shuman and I am so fortunate to be able to have my dream job: teaching the Seniors at Ball High School. I specialize in AP English 4 which is British Literature and my personal and professional life is consumed with British Literature, Culture, and History. I have lived in many places until settling here on Galveston Island in 2009; however, it wasn’t until 2013 that I began working at Ball High School. Teaching is my second career as I spent 9 years as a Human Resource Manager. I believe my experience in the business world, and specifically in human resources, makes me aptly qualified to work with seniors who are taking their first steps into a life beyond high school. I am a proud graduate of Texas A&M University in College Station and enjoy returning often for sporting events. In addition to reading and sports, I have a considerable passion for travel, culture, food, and movies. There is no doubt that teaching is where I am meant to be.
