Rachel Tennenbaum - Human Resources & Payroll Manager
B.A., Cultural Anthropology, University of California, Santa Barbara
Rachel joined The Bay School in the summer of 2017 as the Human Resources and Payroll Manager. Rachel grew up in a small town in Vermont riding horses, skiing, and snowboarding. After graduating from UCSB with a degree in cultural anthropology, she traveled to Brazil to volunteer with a land-reform organization (Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra). Upon returning to the states, Rachel decided to try living in a city "for a year" and came to San Francisco in 1994. Rachel fell into her employment in an independent school business office in the city in 1999 via a temp assignment and has developed a deep love for working within a school community. Rachel is thrilled to be bringing her curiosity, experience, and enthusiasm to Bay. Rachel spends her free time with her daughter reading, camping, hiking, playing on the beach, and admiring other people's dogs.
