Raymond Rummel has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in mathematics.
Mr. Rummel wanted to help young people and make a contribution to the betterment of society. He believes math is a subject that a lot of people do not understand right away and that students need someone who is capable of breaking it down to their level so they can understand. Upon graduating from the University of Florida with an Associate of Arts, Mr. Rummel received a Bachelor of Science in business administration with honors from the institution in 1981. He later secured a Master of Education in mathematics education and an Education Specialist Degree from the University of Florida in 1983 and 1991, respectively. He is a member of Kappa Delta Pi and Pi Lambda Theta Honor Societies.
At the start of his career, Mr. Rummel taught mathematics at Spring Hill Middle School (High Springs, FL) for eight years, before joining Newberry Junior High School for three and a half years and Oak View Middle School (Newberry, FL) for a half year. He was on the transition staff that closed Newberry Junior High and opened Oak View Middle School. Subsequently, he taught mathematics at Newberry High School for ten years, Howard Bishop Middle School/Academy of Technology and Gifted Studies (Gainesville, FL) for 14 years and finished his career returning to Newberry High School for two years until his retirement in 2018. Throughout his profession, Mr. Rummel also contributed as a mathematics teacher for the Reach Out program at Santa Fe College from 2006 to 2008, and as a math instructor with Sylvan Learning Center for a year. For his accomplishments in the field, he was honored by the Huntington Learning Center (Honorable Mention 2005 Student’s Choice Teacher of the Year), the Howard Bishop Middle School (2006-2007 Teacher of the Year), and Sigma Xi (1995 Math Teacher of the Year). In the coming years, Mr. Rummel hopes to become an adjunct professor or a math tutor. He would also like to contribute to the Humane Society or local hospitals.
