Mrs. Michele Chappelear
My name is Michele Chappelear and this is my 17th year of teaching. My husband, James, is a Colonel in the Air Force and we've been married for 25 years. We have 3 kids: Victoria is 23 and is serving in the Peace Corps in Fiji, Emily is 21 and in her junior year at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and my son Nicholas is a freshman 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 his retirement next spring and settling down in Colorado Springs.
