Welcome! My Name Is...

Mrs. Katherine Helm

Welcome to Resource 7th & 8th Grade!

This is my second year teaching! I graduated from Liberty University (Go Flames!) May 2017 with a B.S. in Elementary and Special Education. I also have a minor in American Sign Language. I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in 1st grade and am so excited to continue teaching, but now at a new school - Liberty Middle!

A little bit about me...
I grew up as an Army "Brat" so moving around and adjusting is normal for me. However, I am excited that Lynchburg is now HOME for me! My hubby (Tim) and I have been married since May 27, 2017. We met at Liberty University during our freshman year (2013). We love exploring Lynchburg together. When I am not teaching, I am probably enjoying a donut or tea, reading, or taking a hike in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains with Tim! Oh! And now I have the cutest kitten, so I'll probably be cuddling with her!!

A few favorites...
Drink: Sweet or hot tea
Candy/Snack: Dark chocolate, donuts, or Chex Mix
Color: Purple
Animal: Cats!!
Sports Teams: NY Yankees, NY Giants, and the Washington Capitals
