Mr. Chris Melnyk - 4th Grade Teacher

I have been teaching at Saint Francis since the fall of 2014 and I couldn't be happier to be here. I have lived all over the United States for the past five years. I received a BA in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts-Lowell and a BS in Education from Peru State College (Peru, NE). I have worked in Omaha, Nebraska in a K - 6 school. I also taught 4th grade outside of Washington DC.

I live in Winooski with my wife, daughter and our black lab, Tessie.

I love seeing light bulbs go on in my students’ heads. I love making my students think and ask questions. I was blessed with a great education as a child and I feel it is my vocation to pass that on to others. I enjoy waking up in the morning knowing that I can share my passion for teaching with students every day.
