Hello students and families! My name is Alexandra Michalski and I am the school psychologist at Chelsea Intermediate School. I grew up in Buffalo, New York and received my undergraduate degree in psychology from The Ohio State University. I recently earned my Ed.S. degree in school psychology from Lehigh University and I am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist. I have experience working at the preschool, elementary, middle, and high school levels to support students and families. I am excited to be a part of the team at Chelsea and I'm looking forward to a great year!

Please feel free to reach me at amichalski@fsd157c.org or (815) 806-4504.
