Mrs. Squillini

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!!

Hi!! My name is Rachel Squillini and I teach fifth grade at East Clayton Elementary School. This is my second year at East Clayton and my tenth year teaching. I previously taught both fourth and fifth grade at River Dell Elementary.

I was born in New York but moved to Cary, NC when I was four years old. I've lived in North Carolina ever since. I am the oldest of three kids. My younger brother lives in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife.  My sister is a senior 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 have been married to my loving husband, Anthony, for four 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 for fun competition in the Squillini household. We also have four furbabies - two cats named Kobie and Piper and two dogs named Zeus and Ellie. 

Some other fun facts about me: my favorite color is pink! I love polka dots. Football is my favorite sport but I like attending all sporting events. 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!!

    We are happy to report that buses and carpool are running more smoothly each day, and we want to say thank you for your patience. Please remember that K-2 car riders will begin to load at 3:50 and 3-5 car riders will begin to load at 4:00. It is very important for the safety of our students that all cars picking up students have an official RDE carpool tag.
