Mrs. Marie Rapose
Mrs. Rapose was born and raised in Ashtabula.  She attended Harbor High School and went to the Ashtabula County Joint Vocational School (now A-Tech) where she studied Intense Office Education.   It was there that she fell in love with this occupation.  Starting in a law office and eventually entering the Ashtabula Area City School system, she worked at West Junior High School for 12 years prior to the AACS consolidation.  After taking a few years off to help care for her father-in-law, she decided to re-enter the work force and landed a part-time job at Kingsville Elementary.  After working there for two years, she began working at Edgewood High School and has been here ever since.  She loves what she does for the school system and especially for the students here at Edgewood High School.
