Mrs. Rachel Zimand

Hello! I teach English Skills and Speech at East Hazelwood High School. I’ve taught for many years and just recently left Trinity Catholic High School when it closed in June. I grew up here in St. Louis, and I received both my Bachelor of Arts degree in literature and my Master’s degree in education from Webster University.

I’ve always adored reading, and ever since I was little, I’ve been driven to express myself through writing, speaking and performing. Communicating with others is one of the most important things we do, and doing it well enriches our relationships and our lives. This is the passion I want to pass on to my students.

I live in University City with my husband, and I have two grown sons who are both away at school. In my spare time I love to read, listen to music, sing, and play board games and card games with my family.
