His main goal while he is here is to give a good education. He hopes to give as little referrals as possible and have a mutual understanding with the students. He wants to "have students understand that I do not do favorites." He has a daughter in 5th grade and a son in 8th grade and plans to stay until (and hopefully after) they graduate.
Helmen has acquired a Bachelor's in Elementary Education, Master's in Curriculum and Instruction, Master's in Special Education, an Administer Certification, and is currently going for an EDS in Administration. As a hobby he enjoys playing golf and basketball, and of course spending time with his children. For those that were curious, he explained his heritage: he is part hispanic, african-american, and pacific islander.
