Mrs. Melanie Hester
My name is Melanie Hester. I am beginning my 8th year at Howell Graves as a kindergarten teacher.
I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Educaiton in 2001 from Athens State University. In December 2016, I received my Master's in Elementary Education from the University of North Alabama.
I am married to Mark and we have been married for 17 years. Mark is an engineer for AT&T. We have two daughters. Mallie is in the 9th grade at MSHS and Maudie is in the 7th grade at MSMS. My girls both love school and I am truly thankful for that! Mallie is a cheerleader for the MSHS JV squad and Maudie plays softball for MSMS on the Junior HIgh team. I am also the Cheer Coach for the Muscle Shoals Middle School cheer squad. We are super busy, but we have a ball supporting each other.
I attend Grace Life Church of the Shoals in Muscle Shoals. My hobbies include shopping, being with my family, reading, and looking for ways to improve my classroom and teaching.
