• Welcome to my webpage.  I thought I would share a little information about myself and my family.  I was married to my wonderful husband, Robert for almost 38 years.  He lost his longtime battle to cancer on July 26th, 2021.   We have 3 daughters: Hilary, Hailey, and Hannah.  Hilary and her husband, Mark live in Marion with our three grandaughters, Molly, Paisley, and Andie Brooke.  Hailey and her husband, Ben live in Wisconsin with their daughter, Kora Jo, and son, Finnigan.  Hannah works for a university in Indianapolis, IN.

    I began teaching pre-kindergarten in 1993 at Herrin Elementary and then transferred to Washington in 1995 where I taught for 12 years.  I became a Kindergarten teacher at Washington in 2007.  I love it!

    I am usually at school by 7:30 in the mornings and stay until 4:30 or later each day.  Please feel free to call me in the classroom (993-8534) and leave a message if it is during school hours.  I will return your call as soon as possible.  You can also email me at rmelton@marionunit2.org.
