Mrs. Melinda Hand


During my twenty-four years of teaching, I have taught first, second, and third grades. Teaching third graders is my favorite, and I absolutely love teaching at RET! I am very excited about returning to third grade again this year.   


I am married to my high school sweetheart, Chris. We live in a historic home in Tuscumbia. Our daughter, Lauren, will be attending the University of North Alabama this fall. Our son, Riley, will be entering the fourth grade at RE Thompson.  I love to read, shop, bake, travel, and spend time with family and friends. As a family, we enjoy camping and fishing.
