Hi!! I am Rachel Squillini and I am a fifth grade teacher at East Clayton Elementary School. This is my first year at East Clayton and my ninth year teaching. I taught fifth grade for two years and fourth grade for six years at River Dell Elementary.
I was born in New York but moved to Cary, North Carolina when I was four years old. I've lived in North Carolina ever since. I am the oldest of three kids. My younger brother graduated from UNC Charlotte and now lives in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife. My sister is a junior at University of South Carolina. I graduated from North Carolina State University (GO PACK!!) with a bachelor's in Elementary Education and a concentration in Science.
I am married to my loving husband, Anthony. We have been married for three years! Our son Dallas arrived on September 8, 2018 and we are loving this new adventure as parents! We love to travel, spend time at the pool and beach, attend Carolina Hurricanes hockey games and watch football! We are a house divided in both college and pro football. It makes it a fun competition in our house. We also have four furbabies. I have two loving kitties, Kobie and Piper. They are the best of friends and so much fun! My husband has a dog named Zeus. He is very rambunctious. Then last summer we got a puppy named Ellie. She is now a year old and has completed the four legged members of our family.
Some other fun facts about me: my favorite color is pink! I love polka dots. I spend a lot of time at the beach. Football is my favorite sport but I like attending all sporting events. I go to a lot of football, basketball, and hockey games. I'm afraid of snakes and sharks. Spiders aren't my friends either. Can't wait to learn about all of you as the school year goes on!!
