Mrs. Hrabanek has 13 years teaching experience and has taught in DoDEA schools for 7 years as a third-sixth grade health and physical education teacher at Bolden Elementary School. Prior to joining DoDEA schools, she taught health and physical education at Lady's Island Middle School. She is a graduate of East Stroudsburg University with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Physical Education. She received her Masters of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Wheelock College.

Mrs. Hrabanek firmly believes in healthy minds, healthy bodies. In order to change our children's attitudes about fitness, it is up to educators, and we must start now. Life-long health must be taught at every grade level by highly qualified educators. A colleague states, "Using her health background coupled with her personal experience, Michelle has developed inspiring lessons for her students with disabilities. The heart of the matter is that she goes beyond the call of duty as a mom, co-worker, and community advocate and especially as an educator of our young people."
