Mrs. Helms - First Grade

I grew up in eastern Union County and I earned my elementary teaching degree from Wingate University in 2006. My husband is a commercial contractor and we have 3 children who all attend UA as well. We have a dog named Storm, a cat named Penny, a bunny named Bella and 7 chickens!

This is my 3rd year teaching 1st grade, and will be my 6th year at UA.  My first few years at UA were spent teaching Kindergarten at the Lower Campus. Before I came to UA, I spent 6 years teaching in Union County, as well as a few years teaching TK at a local preschool. I have experience across the elementary grades and really enjoy it all! 

Each day I am reminded of how great it is to be teaching in a place that values character and parent involvement. I am grateful that I get to be a part of instilling those core values in our students. I'm thankful to be a Cardinal!
