Mrs. Rachel Sherman


Hello, I am Rachel Sherman.  I am proud to be serving as Hazel Owens Elementary's school principal.  I am starting my 13th year in education.  Before becoming a campus principal, I have served as an assistant principal, first grade, second grade and fourth grade classroom teacher.

My husband Geoff Sherman is also a campus principal in Tyler ISD at Hubbard Middle School.  We have three children, Landon who is a freshman this year, Emma Kate - 4, and Millie - 2.  We love the Tyler community and are grateful to be able to serve in this capacity.  My family is passionate about education and positively impacting student lives.  My mother is a classroom teacher, my mother in law is a lecturer at UT Tyler and my father in law is soon retiring as Dean of the Education and Psychology at UT Tyler after 32 years of service at the university.  Nelson Mandela says, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

I want every Owens family to feel welcome at our school and confident in their child's educational experience with us.  Please come see the wonderful things happening in and out of classrooms and be a part of our successful student outcomes.  I encourage you to join our phenomenal school PTA.  Their partnership greatly benefits our students and teachers.

If I can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.  We are here to serve the students in our great community.

Go Eagles!
