Ms. Rachel Petrillo
Hi, everyone! My name is Rachel Petrillo and I can’t wait to start the New Year at Holly Hill Elementary. I am the youngest out of 4 siblings. I am also a member at Elam Baptist Church. We will make reading fun and full of exciting things to learn each day.
I graduated from Ariton High School in 2007 from the sweet town of Ariton that my parents Audrey and Peter Petrillo call home. I was raised in Ariton and after high school I received an art scholarship for graphic design at Enterprise State Community College. I enjoyed using my creative, artistic abilities but felt called to become a teacher. I transferred to The University of Alabama for my B.S. in Early Childhood Education and graduated summa cum laude in 2016. After communicating with my professors and mentors I decided to continue on with my education at Troy University with my M.S in Elementary Education.
I am excited to meet all the students and their parents for this upcoming year. Reading is a passion of mine and I am blessed to be able to teach a subject I love. I am a dedicated Alabama fan (Roll Tide) and football season is my favorite time of year.
