With experience as a math teahcer and 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 both Geography to first and second grade students and math to third 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 Elementary Education graduate and a West Michigan native, Melanie has made her home in Ohio for 22 years with her husband, Ron. They are part of the Faith Bible Church family and have two children, a son who is a recent MHA alum and a daughter in 11th grade. Outside of the classroom, Melanie spends time overseeing the MHA jump rope teams, traveling with her family, and cheering on her children while they do what they love.
