Subjects Taught
First Grade


I graduated from Walters State Community College in 2003 with an Associate's Degree in Elementary Education. I then went to East Tennessee State University and graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary (K-8) Education. I completed my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Tusculum College in 2009.



I was born and raised in East Tennessee. I have known that teaching was my calling since working with children at Girls Incorporated from the age of sixteen. My husband, Lance Helton, is also a teacher. He teaches 6th grade at East Ridge Middle School. We have both been fortunate in being able to work in very positive atmospheres and have had great community and parent involvement. We have been married since August 2003 and were blessed with the birth of a beautiful baby girl, Kensey, on July 13, 2010. We are members of Central Baptist Church where I teach Sunday School for our primary class. I enjoy swimming, being at the lake, Tennessee football games, shopping, and spending time with family and friends.
