Hello! My name is Helen Melwid and I am currently enjoying my 25th year of teaching at the best elementary school in Bloomington! Marlin, of course! I have had the pleasure of teaching all grades, K -6. I was born in Yonkers, New York and raised in Bloomington where I graduated from Bloomington South. After obtaining my BS degree from Indiana University, I began my career at St. Charles School where I taught for five wonderful years. When the opportunity arose to move to Marlin, I couldn't resist. While raising my children, I obtained my Masters Degree from Indiana Wesleyan.
I have been married to Dave Melwid for 31 years and have four wonderful children. Michael is married and lives in Noblesville with his wife Shanel, Kristen lives in Indianapolis and works for the IU School of Medicine, Jordan and Daniel are both attending college in Bloomington. We also have a black lab named Addie who is constantly entertaining us all.
I love to try new recipes and bake delicious goodies. I enjoy reading, walking with friends, playing tennis, and getting together with my four siblings and their families. I'm an avid sports fan who enjoys cheering on my favorite teams, especially IU basketball and Notre Dame football!
