Mrs. Michele Chappelear

My name is Michele Chappelear and this is my 18th year of teaching.  My husband, James, just retired as Colonel in the Air Force after 26 years of service and we've been married for 26years.  We have 3 kids: Victoria is 24 and just returned from serving in the Peace Corps in Fiji, Emily is 22 and in her senior year at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and my son Nicholas is a sophomore at the University of Washington - Seattle.  Originally from Maryland, I attended the University of Maryland - College Park where I received my bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering. I later earned my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Cincinnati.   My husband's career has taken us all over the country; and given me the opportunity to teach Chemistry, Physics and Earth Science in Arizona, Nebraska, and New Mexico.  We look forward to many more years living in Colorado Springs.
