Meet the Staff

  • Mrs. Read
    I am Helen Read. This is my sixth year teaching; my very first 7th graders are graduating this year. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English from Sam Houston State University and a Masters of Education in Advanced Literacy from Concordia University. I sang in school choirs from the time I was in fourth grade until I graduated from college. Before becoming a teacher, I worked for IBM for 11 years. My grandmother retired from IBM and my father is an executive for IBM now. My husband used to work for IBM, but is now a full time engineering student.  We have one child. Our son, Jensen, just turned 1 year old. I love cats and musicals. I love to scrapbook and shop. I collect Box Tops and books (especially ones signed by authors I've met.) I absolutely love teaching 7th grade English; there is nothing in the world that I'd rather do. I have my dream job!
