Ms. Helms's Kindergarten Class
My name is Mattie Helms and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten at Shawboro Elementary School! I am grateful to have Mrs. Hartman working in my classroom as my Teacher’s Assistant as well. She has been a TA for 27 years and helps me daily. I can’t wait to get to know every student in my class, but first, here’s a little about me.
I was raised in the small town of Martinsville, Virginia and moved to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina about 9 years ago. I graduated from First Flight High School and am a proud graduate of East Carolina University where I studied Elementary Education. Being an educator runs in my family. My grandmother, mom, and sister are all teachers as well. I am so grateful to be teaching at this amazing school so close to my home.
When I’m not at school I love relaxing on the beach with a good book, watching ECU football games (Go Pirates!!), and spending time with my loving dog, Peachie. I love communicating and getting to know my students and their parents. If there are any questions or concerns you have, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to a wonderful year working with and watching my Kindergarten students grow.
