All About Me

Hello! Welcome to my page. My name is Ms. Hellum and I am your child's 5th grade math teacher. Shortly after I graduated high school in 2007, I moved to San Antonio and attended Palo Alto College then transfered to Texas A&M-San Antonio, graduating in 2015 with my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies degree. This is my fourth year teaching at Palo Alto Elementary and I love every minute of it. I truly believe that I have the best job in the world. I'm excited for the 2018-19 school year.  Scroll down to learn a little bit more about me.

Why I Became a Teacher

I believe a part of me has always known that I was going to be a teacher. As I went through my academic career I looked back on the values the ideas that had been instilled in me as a kid by my elementary school teacher, and once I realized the impact that one person had had on me, everything clicked. I believe in our future and I also believe that children are our future. I became a teacher in hopes of affecting students the way I was affected when I was young. Providing them with more then just knowledge but a basis and a respect for learning and growth and curiosity that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
