With experience in the classroom and as a travel agent, Mrs. Melanie Ruppersburg marvels at how God merged these two seasons of her life together and gave her the opportunity to teach Geography to first and second grade students at Mars Hill. She counts it a privilege to pass on a love for and wonder of the Creator and His amazing world to her students. A Cedarville University graduate and a West Michigan native, Melanie has made her home in Ohio for 21 years with her husband, Ron. They are part of the Faith Bible Church family and have two children who are both MHA Rhetoric School students. Outside of the classroom, Melanie spends time overseeing the MHA jump rope teams, traveling with her family, and cheering on her teens while they do what they love.
