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, and 7 chickens!

This is my 2nd year teaching 1st grade, but my 5th 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!
