    My name is Melanie Hendon and I have been teaching first grade for 14 years.  I graduated from UT Martin in 2005 with a degree in K-8 Elementary Education.  Three years ago I earned my Master's Degree in Reading and Writing from Murray State.  I spent my first four years teaching in the metro Atlanta area before moving back home to Paris.  I have been married to my husband, Jeremy for 15 years. We have two children, Regan and Piper and we enjoy spending time outdoors as a family.  Opening up windows of learning and opportunity for children is my passion and I look forward to another great school year at Rhea Elementary!
