Michelle Rapchik-Levin has been an educator for over thirty years. Her undergraduate work was in Psychobiology & Judaic Studies at University of Miami and her graduate work was in Jewish Education and Curriculum Development at Barry University & Hebrew University. She has studied the Holocaust extensively at a variety of institutions, including Yad Vashem, Boston Hebrew College & at the Polin Museum in Warsaw, Poland. She is trained by Facing History to teach their Holocaust curriculum and has been teaching it on the High School level for the past 5 years. Although Michelle spent sixteen years as the Director of Professional Development and Educational Resources at the Orloff Central Agency for Jewish Education in Southern Florida, she went back to the High School classroom six years ago and is loving it!
"Morah Levin", as her students call her, is a native of South Florida and has lived there most of her life. She lived in Israel for ten years, where she met her South African husband, Motti and together they have two children. Michelle describes herself as a television, movie & social media junkie, who also takes time to cook and eat. She loves car trips and game night with her family as well as quiet nights at home curled up with a good serial killer novel.
Morah Levin has lived and experienced many sides of education. She is a perpetual student herself, as well as a teacher. Her children have been students in both brick & mortar and online schools and had positive experiences in both arenas. She is very excited about going back to the virtual classroom and meeting students from different places around the world.
