Rashmi Vashisht is a new member of the Highland Park Senior High School staff; she is the assistant principal for 10th graders. Since she’s new to Highland, I thought it would be a good idea to ask her a few questions about herself to get to know our new assistant principal.
- What high school did you attend?
“I attended a high school in India.”
- Where did you grow up?
“I grew up in India.”
- What is your favorite color and why?
“My favorite color is green,” she said. “It’s because the color green gives liveliness, it gives you feeling of good, and it set a very interesting mood.”
- What do you do for fun?
“I like to travel, dance, walk, and hike.”
- How would describe yourself?
“I would say I am a people person and more of a relationship person. I would also describe myself as a person who likes to spend time with family and friends, and I am always eager to learn new things.”

“A place in India, Kashmir, it’s a beautiful valley, a city known for lakes and garden.”
