Julia Melloni is in her sixth year of teaching Religion at Mater Christi Middle School. Her degrees include a Spiritual Director certification from the Silver Dove Institute, a Bachelor of Art in Mass Communication from the University of Vermont, Master of Arts in Teaching from UVM with a dual endorsement in Middle Level Education in Social Studies and Language Arts.
The classroom is where Ms. Melloni synthesizes her knowledge and skills of adolescent development with the mission and ministry of the Sisters’ of Mercy. Middle School Religion is a place where students are able to engage in the wonders of the world and the compassion in their hearts.
Ms. Melloni is also a certified First Responder, Yoga, and Spinning instructor teaching fitness classes at the Y and UVM. She is often swimming, paddle boarding, and sailing on Lake Champlain. When the snow flies both cross country and downhill skiing are employed. Mostly, Ms. Melloni loves the contemplative life which sometimes includes indulging in the luxury of reading in the evening by lamp light. Ms. Melloni and her husband, Thomas live in Burlington. Until very recently, all three daughters shared the same address. They have graduated from their university studies and have flown the coop to pursue their careers in finance, electrical engineering, and biochemistry. Many cherished ours are spent catching up on Facetime with Bianca, Elena, and Marcella!
