Reality Titbit has done some digging to find out which school Michelle taught at before her fame.

Michelle works as a fifth-grade teacher at Normandale Hills Elementary School in Bloomington, Minnesota.

She is extremely dedicated to her students, as according to Reality Steve, she was supposed to star in The Bachelorette season 17.
