My name is Rachel Derusha Anderle and I am a dual credentialed K-12 Spanish and math teacher. I am a 2013 University of Michigan alumna, originally from Coopersville, Michigan. After college, I spent a few years in San Francisco teaching high school Spanish and math in urban public schools.
I returned to my beloved Great Lakes and I'm currently a Spanish and technology teacher to 748 preK-5th grade students at Zeeland Public Schools near Holland, Michigan. I also volunteer as an alumni student recruiter for the University of Michigan. My work is primarily with students from high schools in San Francisco and West Michigan, as well as underrepresented minority students from across the nation.
