Meet one of the teachers!

 Well hello world! This is 1/2 of What the Teacher Wants!  
I'm Rachelle and I'm a bloggaholic.  
I am obsessed with blogging and blog stalking.  I teach 1st in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah.  I love my job more than I love blogging and I love my husband {sometimes} more than I love teaching. I really love refurbishing furniture (my husband calls it "watch out Rachelle wants to paint something").  I enjoy decorating my house and doing crafty things.
My hubby and I met in college (Southern Utah University=very small, but amazing). 
It was your typical love story. Boy chase girl, girl run from boy.

Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t a teacher?                                             
A:  I would for sure be a professional organizer. I still want to be.

Q: What are your hobbies?                                                                                    
A:  Teaching, t.v., hiking, working out, "watching" football (when I say watching I mean it's a perfect blogging time), and hanging with the family.                                                                

Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?                     
A:  A singer or a rockstar. My sister crushed my dreams when she said I wouldn't be as good as Whitney Houston or Ozzy Osbourne. I'm obviously still trying to be a rockstar.

Q: What are your guilty pleasures?                                                       
 A: ANY reality t.v. (Intervention, True Life,  Jersey Shore (it's tttttttt-shirt time), and Survivor), Sour Patch Watermelons, and organizing closets {weirdo alert}.

Q: What is your biggest fear?!                                                            
 A: Anyone choking.  I seriously cut my nieces Cherrios into 5 tiny pieces.

Q: When you’re on vacation, where do you like to go?                        
 A: My hubby and I are going to the Eastern Carribean this spring.  My ultimate dream vacation is Italy.  I'm Italian (like 1/100) and I'm proud {insert fist pump}!
I've always wanted to go to Pittsburgh to see the Steelers play one day.  I fell in love with the Steelers when I fell in love with my husband.  I had no choice (P.S. we ended up taking that dream trip in 2017)

Q: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?                                                   
A:  Do what you say and say what you mean.  This has helped in the success of my marriage! Here is a picture of me and my hubby on my our happiest day!

Q: What do you value most in others?                                                                   
A:  Positive attitudes. No one likes a negative Nancy.

Q: If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass down to your kids, what would it be?                                                                                                        
A: My irresistible sarcasm.  It's hard not to laugh at a ridiculous person. ;)

Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world….living or dead…who would it be?                                                                                                    
A:  Probably Oprah- as cliche as that sounds.  When I watched her show I would take everything to heart.  If she told me to eat dirt, I would!
Now tell us one random thing about yourself:
I have slight OCD (I think), but I just consider myself a really organized and clean person.  I was IN LOVE with NSYNC in Jr. High and went to their concert and honestly, I shed a tear. I am the VP of Membership for my sorority's Alumnae Chapter in Salt Lake (go Alpha Phi!). Did you know I've only taught for 2 1/2 years (I have now taught 11 years....this was written THAT LONG AGO)? And, I spent one month in Kenya teaching at a school for the deaf!  I don't know much Kenyan sign language, but I did learn a lot while I was there! The children of Kenya are forever in my heart. It was life changing.
