Welcome, my name is Ms. Helt. I am originally from a small town in Iowa called Mount Pleasant. Growing up on a farm I always knew I wanted to live in the big city but did not realize I would make it to Arizona. When I graduated from high school I move to Omaha, Nebraska. I spent 8 years in Omaha where I completed my bachelor's degree and started my teaching career. I moved to Arizona in June 2018. I love to travel, hike, and go back to Iowa to visit family.
