Hi! My name is Michelle Wheeler. This is my first year at Malley Drive Elementary and I am thrilled to be a Malley Mustang! Prior to joining Adams 12, I worked at a middle and high school in Denver. One of the greatest joys of my career (and possibly my life) was watching those students who started with me as tiny 6th graders in 2011 learn and grow into the young adults that I watched walk across the stage and receive their high school diplomas in 2018.
In addition to education, I have worked with children and families in a variety of roles and settings since I moved to Denver in 2002. I completed my undergraduate degree in 2001 from Grinnell College in Iowa and earned my Master of Social Work in 2007 from the University of Denver.
I have two little boys and when I am not at school I am busy running around with them; they keep me on my toes! We moved to a new house this summer where we've been swimming, going on bike rides, doing lots of Legos, and exploring our new neighborhood. When I'm not busy being a mom, I love to go camping and find big, epic hikes in the mountains.
