Mrs. Helmer's 8th Grade History

Welcome to 8th grade History! I am excited to start my 18th year of teaching. American History is my favorite subject and I am thrilled to be able to teach it again. My husband and I are parents to three children: our 11 year old daughter is starting middle school this year and our two-9 year old twin boys are entering 4th grade. We also have a 3 year old dog named Trooper, who is the most difficult member of our family. Last October we decided to adopt another dog and we named him Chewbacca (we are clearly Star Wars fans). I am passionate about many things but in particular I love the Golden State Warriors, coffee, and playing soccer. I look forward to getting to know my new students and sharing my love of history.
