Mrs. Helms is excited to be a part of the Hughston family as the Assistant Principal. She loves the sense of community and family that makes Hughston such a unique campus. Prior to joining the Hughston family, she was a teacher for over 17 years and has been an Assistant Principal for 5 years. She has worked at several different campuses in the district and is so happy to be a Mustang! She is committed to the growth and success of each student and educator on our campus. In collaboration with families, Hughston staff, and our community, she looks forward to continuing the excellence at Hughston Elementary. Personally, she was born in Yuma, AZ and made her way to Wichita Falls, Texas when she was in high school. She has lived in Plano for 22 years and is married to her best friend for over ten years. They have two children, who attend Plano ISD schools. Their family time is spent swimming, riding bikes, and playing disc golf. Her personal goal is to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. She is grateful to be a part of the Hughston family and work alongside the amazing staff. Please do not hesitate to contact her or come by if she can assist you at any time.
