First and Second Grades – Red Team

1st & 2nd Grade Details

Our 1st & 2nd-grade teacher is Mrs. Melanie Deede, who brings years of teaching experience to her classroom. Her degree is in Elementary Education and Special Education. She was in the congregation when they first announced that there was an opening for a First-Grade teacher at Hope Lutheran and has taught here 23 out of the 24 years since. She is married to her wonderful husband, Josh, and they have four children. In her free time, she likes to run, hike, fish, swim, and do Spartan obstacle races. Her favorite time of the year is Lutheran Schools Week at the end of January. It is a time to celebrate the amazing school that we have here, as well as be able to have fun dressing up with the students. Her students learn in an exciting environment and work is planned for each of their individual learning goals.
