Hi, I'm Rachael! I have been a teacher since 2012. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, and sixth grade English. I also have a masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I started my teaching career in a town just outside Austin, Tx where I lived most of my life. My family and I moved to the Lake Tahoe area in 2016. When I started my TPT store, it was named Sweet Sweet Primary. In 2020, I changed it to The Tahoe Teacher. (I have been updating resources ever since but you may still see the old logo on some things.)
My husband and I are a Brady Bunch with 5 kids all super close in age. I love to travel, read, hang out at the lake, shop, and create. I love teaching science and social studies and decorating my classroom.
Current obsessions: Nickel and Suede earrings, Olive and June nail polish, anything Scandinavian, gnomes, books by Fredrik Backman, and collecting fonts and clipart.
Unpopular opinions: I don't like taking selfies and reels are not my thing.
