Mrs. Jesslyn Helton
Hi! My name is Jesslyn Helton and I am so excited you are part of our Brookhill family.
I have been married to my husband for 12 years and we have a sweet 10-year-old boy and a rambunctious 3-year-old little girl. My husband and I both grew up locally in Madison County and have been Limestone County residents for 17 years. We love the small-town feel in Limestone County. In our free time, we enjoy family time, reading, and cheering on our children in the many sports they participate in. We are a super active family bouncing between baseball, basketball, racing, and ballet.
After high school, I attended Martin Methodist College in Pulaski, TN, earning a Bachelor's in Teaching. I completed my Masters's in Arts, Teaching at Dallas Baptist University in May 2018. My plan is to continue pursuing an Administration certificate. In addition to finishing my Masters's degree in May 2018, I also completed in-depth two-year training for CALT certification (Certified Academic Language Therapist) through the Shelton School in Dallas, TX. This is a Dyslexia Specific intervention and reading specialist certification that is highly sought after.
Teachers should always be positive influences on their students' lives. It is my hope to be (and build) a strong foundation on which their entire educational journey rests.
