Mrs. Rachel Vachal

Hello and welcome to kindergarten!


My name is Mrs. Vachal and I am so excited to be teaching at Galileo again this year.  After teaching nine years of first grade, this will be my first year teaching kindergarten.  Most importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher!  It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures.  I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us.  I want to know ALL about you, but first I am going to tell you a few things about me.

I have a wonderful husband named Drew.  We like to eat pizza and watch movies together.  We have one daughter named Evelyn.  She loves to talk and run around everywhere!  We are currently expecting our second baby, a baby boy!  We also have one cat named Ginny.  She is orange and crazy!  I went to college at Boise State University (Go Broncos!) and earned my Master’s Degree from Boise State a few years ago.

In my free time I enjoy reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family and friends. 

Thank you for sharing your child with me this year! I look forward to partnering with you and making your child's kindergarten year the best it can be!
