My name is Rachelle Schurman. This is my sixth year teaching with DC West and I absolutely enjoy every second of it! I appreciate having the ability to build relationships with the faculty, parents, and of course the students. I am excited to begin teaching this year and I look forward to many new learning experiences as well as, working with you to promote an optimal learning experience for your child.

Other than my work with DC West I was a preschool teacher and education specialist at Bright Horizons for seven years. Before working for Bright Horizons I worked at a small Catholic School/Child Care as a preschool teacher and summer camp coordinator. I feel that all of my past teaching opportunities have presented rewards and yet challenges that has influenced my current teaching style. In addition to my working experiences, I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney with an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education Unified, which encompasses both general and special education. I then graduated from Peru State College with a graduate degree in Curriculum Instruction.

Now to share a bit about family and myself. I was born and raised in South Omaha having moved to Yutan eight years ago. I was lucky enough to marry my husband six summers ago and this summer we celebrated our son, Cameron’s fifth birthday! In October we will be celebrating our daughter Avery’s second birthday! We enjoy spending time together outdoors, swimming, and traveling across the states to various sporting events. Overall, we are very laid back and value the simple things in life.
