In 2009 Rachelle Dyer and Shannon Nicoll attended a concert together and snapped a picture of themselves side by side. Their mutual friends kept insisting the pair looked alike, but they thought nothing of it, until a bit of modern technology revealed the truth in 2019. Rachelle and Shannon, as well as each of their sisters, had the same mom.
In 2004 Dyer moved nearly 2,500 miles from her hometown of Seattle, Washington, to Virginia Beach, Virginia. Dyer also got a job as an assistant special education teacher at Tallwood Elementary. On top of that, as she shared on Facebook, “I have the most amazing son and husband! I am a lucky woman!”
Eventually, Dyer would come to know Virginia Beach native Nicoll. Right off the bat, the pair shared a connection. Nicoll had completed her student teaching at Tallwood Elementary, where Dyer later worked. But the two never crossed paths at the school, as Nicoll went on to teach at King’s Grant Elementary.
