Mrs. Michele Rapal
I'm Mrs. Rapal, School Social Worker. I am married to Denny Rapal, who also teaches in the district, and have a seven year old son, Tanner. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, bird watching, spending time in my garden and just being out in nature. I also enjoy keeping up on the national news and world events.
I have worked as a school social worker in West Bloomfield since 1999 and have been in many different buildings. Currently, I am at Sheiko elementary school and am truly enjoying working with the upper-elementary school students. Prior to working in the schools, I spent five years working in the Michigan foster cares system as both a caseload manager and an adoption specialist at Ennis Center For Children in Pontiac. This was an amazing experience which truly prepared me to work with all different types of families and children.
I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to watch so many students grow, mature and blossom into young adults.
