Mrs. Nancy Hellewell joins us from the state of Texas where she served as an Assistant Principal, Instructional Coach, and a classroom teacher. Mrs. Hellewell states, “I come from a family of educators that spans across several generations. Life-long learning is a passion of mine, and I hope to instill that love in my fellow Grizzlies as I help support an environment that prepares our students for college and success in the future.”
We are all very excited to have Mrs. Hellewell join our Granite Mountain team as she shares our vision of “Preparing Today’s Students for Tomorrow’s Opportunities.”
AdoptaClassroom.org, a non-profit organization, provide funds directly to individual teachers to support their specific classroom. Given our local educational funding shortfall, adoptaclassroom.org is an excellent way to support a classroom and a teacher through a tax deductible donation. 100% of the funds donated go directly to a teacher chosen by the donator. The donator gets a tax receipt as well as a full report on how the money was used by the teacher and the positive impact the donation had on the specific classroom. Please click on the brochure link, below, for more information on how you can help.
