Mrs. Michele Chappelear
My name is Michele Chappelear and this is my 16th year of teaching. My husband, James, is a Colonel in the Air Force and we've been married for 24 years. We have 3 kids: Victoria is 21 and in her last year at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Emily is 19 and starting her sophomore year at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and my son Nicholas is a senior at Rampart High School. 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 his retirement in the next couple years and settling down in Colorado Springs.
