    Hello, I am Mrs. Melchor and I am so happy to be your teacher librarian!


    I am an El Paso native, and attended an EPISD school from Kindergarten to 5th grade.  I graduated from The University of Texas at El Paso with a Bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies with a concentration in early childhood.  I taught 1st and 2nd grade in the Ysleta Independent School District for 12 years.  I then taught Kindergarten at Saint Raphael Catholic School for six and a half years.  The position afforded me the opportunity to pursue my lifelong dream of a Master’s degree in library science. I graduated with my Master’s degree in library science in April 2021 from the University of North Texas.  I proudly became a state certified school librarian in the summer of 2021.  I believe children are precious diamonds, that year after year faculty and staff polish until the brilliant beauty of the gem is revealed in its own good time.


    I love to travel and in fact have traveled to 13 countries internationally, with the remaining continents of South America, Africa, and Antarctica on my to-do list.  I especially enjoyed Japan, Ireland, and Spain.
