Ms. Rachel Fuhrman

Ms. Fuhrman is excited to be joining the Chalmette High School community as a Special Education teacher at the 9th Grade Academy in the 2020-2021 school year. She has spent the past three years as an inclusion math teacher in middle school settings in both New Orleans and New York City. She recently completed her Master of Science degree in Secondary Education and is eager to apply all that she has learned to help her ninth-grade students succeed.

Her passion for education and desire to pursue teaching as a career began at an early age. She was incredibly inspired by her own teachers and how they were able to be both supportive and demanding of excellence at the same time. She was drawn to special education as she enjoys working closely with individual students and appreciates the opportunity to ensure that all materials are accessible for all students.

Outside of the classroom, she enjoys reading fiction novels and doing yoga.
