Mrs. Erica Hand

Hello! This begins my 13th year in music education. I am so excited to be at Athens Elementary!

I was the choir director at Athens High School and Middle School previously.

In 2017, I was awarded Teacher of the Year for SPARK Academy at Cowart Elementary.

I was the Choir Director for Hazel Green High School from 2009-2014.

In 2014 I moved to elementary music at Julian Newman Elementary and Cowart Elementary.

I am married to Stanley Hand and we have two beautiful children, Elijah and Mary Elizabeth.

My passion has always been music. I began performing at age 4.

I also enjoy camping, reading, and and traveling.
