Ms. Helms' Kindergarten Class
My name is Mattie Helms, and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten at Shawboro Elementary School! This year will look different due to virtual learning, but my Kindergarten team and I will work hard to make it as normal as possible. I am so grateful to be working with an amazing group of Kindergarten teachers. 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 10 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 have all been teachers. I am so grateful to be teaching at this amazing school.
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 spunky puppy, Pumpkin . I love communicating and getting to know my students and their parents. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me. I look forward to a wonderful year working with and watching my Kindergarten students grow.
