Rachel Zimmerman

This is my eighth year teaching at Bancroft and I am so excited to be apart of such a great school community!  I have been working with youth for as long as I can remember. Previous to teaching second grade, I was a special education teacher for eight years at Bethune, City View, Wenonah, and Anwatin. Teaching is truly one of my life passions. Connecting with kids fills my cup each day and I feel lucky to be a Minneapolis Public School teacher. 

Outside of school, you can find me on my yoga mat at the popular yoga centers around the twin cities. I also have a love for kettlebells and other group fitness classes. Yoga and weight lifting centers and grounds me, allowing me to give my best to Bancroft students. I also enjoy walking around the lakes in the summers with my black lab, named Major Big Deal. 

I am here for you and your child(ren). It is my intention to create postive and meaningful relationships with Bancroft families and to educate and mentor students.  I belive in equal opportunities for all and set high expectations for myself and my students.
