Mr. Dean Rumsey

U.S. History

Hello, my name is Dean Rumsey and I teach our wonderful U.S. History students at Ball High School. I am a new teacher but have taught social studies classes at a community college. Ball is an awesome place to learn and work! I challenge students every year to do their best and to be successful products of their community, but not without the guidance and support from myself and their school. I encourage parents to be active participants in their child’s education. My philosophy- BELIEVE, YOU CAN AND DO YOUR BEST! I love to travel and have seen four continents. I spend all my spare time with my family and friends. We enjoy poolside, movies, and traveling. We also have four cats who are very spoiled! I graduated from University of Michigan in Flint, Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. My first career choice was video creation, but, I found another passion, leading to my career in teaching.
