Mrs. Hella Rumschlag, MLS
Library Media Specialist
844-1158 Extension 1510
I have been the Media Specialist at Mohawk Trails Elementary since 2006. It's wonderful to see students develop a love of reading and discover the resources to pursue personal interests in our library. Their enthusiasm for learning is inspiring, and I learn right along with them every day. I also feel very fortunate to work with the most amazing staff; talented professionals who encourage, support, and learn from each other.
Prior to earning my Master of Library Science at IUPUI, I worked as an assistant at Hinkle Creek Elementary in Noblesville and before that, I was a library volunteer and substitute teacher. My years at Hinkle Creek convinced me that a school library is where I was meant to be.
I also have a B.S. in Microbiology from Cornell University and an M.S. in Microbiology and Public Health from Purdue University. In my life before children, I was a microbiologist at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia. I retain a passion for science and am grateful for the opportunity to organize the MTE Invention and Science Night each year.
My husband Tony and I have been married since 1985 and are the parents of two grown sons. In my spare time I enjoy reading, walking my dog, and traveling.
