Mrs. Melinda Hand


During my twenty-two years of teaching, I have taught first, second, and third grades. I absolutely love teaching third grade at RET! I am very excited to be teaching reading and social studies this year. 


I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Chris, for nearly 25 years. We live in a historic home in Tuscumbia. We have a daughter, Lauren, and a son, Riley, who both attend school in the Tuscumbia City School System.  I love to read, cook, travel, and spend time with family and friends. As a family, we enjoy camping and fishing.
