My name is Helena Shepard. I have lived in St. Ignace most of my life. It has been a privilege to live in this town and attend the schools. I am married and have four children. My husband has a degree in Forestry and is the new head St. Ignace Football coach. Our precious oldest child, Tucker, is no longer with us, our oldest daughter is in college, our middle daughter is in 10th grade, and our youngest daughter is in 7th grade.
After graduating from LaSalle, I attended Central Michigan University. There I received a Bachelor Degree in Education. After graduation I was hired at St. Ignace to teach a HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skills) Program. I have also taught in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. Currently, I am teaching 6th grade. My major is in Mathematics and my minor is in Language Arts. I earned my Master's Degree from Northern Michigan University in Elementary Education. Also, I have 15 credits towards a degree in Administration. I will continue to educate myself in the teaching profession.
Furthering my professional education is a very important part of my life. I am on the MCRT (Math Curriculum Review Team). This committee is responsible for creating a curriculum that can be used throughout the EUPISD. I am part of our School Improvement Committee. Also, I recently joined the District Wide School Improvement Team. I hope to learn many new ideas and concepts through these committees.
