Educational Support Services Teacher
Teaching is a family legacy for Educational Support Services (ESS) teacher Tracy Helm. Her mother set an example of excellent teaching and by the time she was a freshman in high school, Helm knew she wanted to follow in the footsteps of her role model.
After studying Special Education at Indiana University and working as a moderate and severe disabilities teacher, she started working in ESS at Heritage this year. Helm says that she gains energy for teaching from “seeing that spark that ignites within [students] when they have learned something,” and being able to share her faith with the kids she works with.
And in the end, she says that what she appreciates most about Heritage is “the wonderful people here that have welcomed me in and made me feel like one of the family.”
