Ms. Michelle Rappaport

Michelle Rappaport is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and has been a school social worker for 29 years with both regular education and special education programs.  She graduated from Loyola University of Chicago with a Masters in Social Work.  Michelle Rappaport created the Building Bridges: An Alternative to Suspension Program used at Cyd Lash and other districts across the country.  The Building Bridges focuses on teaching and practicing skills students need to be successful in difficult situations.  Ms. Rappaport has worked as both a Social Worker and a Crisis Intervention Specialist prior to coming to SEDOL and Cyd Lash 11 years ago.  I am currently working in office intervention.  I love working with the students at Cyd Lash Academy and there is no place I would rather be working.

Outside of school, Ms. Rappaport enjoys spending time with family and friends.  She enjoys going to musicals and concerts.
