Hi!! I am Rachel Squillini and I am a fourth grade teacher at River Dell Elementary School. This is my eighth year at River Dell. I taught fifth grade my first two years, and then moved to fourth grade.
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. My sister is a sophomore 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 two years! Our biggest adventure will start in Septemenber, when our first child makes his debut. 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 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!!

Every summer many students go off on vacation before turning in all of their library books. We encourage students and their families to bring in missing library books over the summer as soon as the items are found to prevent possible loss or damage and to allow the media center to complete the end-of-the-year inventory. Click here to view your library account status to see if you have any overdue/missing items.
Please follow theses procedures to help with parking and traffic in the front of our building run smoother. If you are picking your child up in carpool, please do not line up before 3:15pm. This will allow our parents who are coming to the 2pm performance and grade level awards to leave and not be blocked in by cars lining up for carpool. Also, if you are coming to a performance and grade level award presentation, please do not park in the back bus parking lot; you will need to park at the front of the school and come in to get a visitor pass. And finally, I wanted to let all of the parents of our 3rd through 5th grade students. You will receive information about EOG scores in writing no later than this Wednesday, May 22nd.
