Mrs. Melinda Hand
I have taught first and second grades for twenty years at Colbert Heights Elementary School. I am very excited to be teaching third grade at R.E. Thompson this year!
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Chris, for 22 years. We have lived in Tuscumbia for the past 15 years. We have a daughter, Lauren, and a son, Riley, who both attend school in the Tuscumbia City School System. Lauren will be entering ninth grade at the high school, and Riley will be entering kindergarten at GWT. We enjoy camping, fishing, and spending time with family and friends. We are all proud to be Deshler Tigers!
