Danielle Helm Bio

Welcome to another amazing school year! I am beginning my 29th year of teaching with 15 years at Wolford Elementary!  I received my undergraduate degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in Interdisciplinary studies with an emphasis in special education. I continued my education at the University of North Texas where I received my master’s degree in education with an emphasis in language arts. I spent many years in the resource classroom and then continued my love of teaching in fourth grade. After spending 17 years in fourth grade, I moved to third grade for an amazing seven years. I am so excited to return to fourth grade this year!
I have two sons of my own who both graduated from Wolford.  My oldest graduated from McKinney High School in 2019.  My youngest is a junior at McKinney Boyd. He is a trombone player in the marching band.  I am an avid reader and love to watch movies. It will not take you long to see that Star Wars is one of my favorites. Just come visit my classroom. I love this community and I feel blessed to call it my home! My door is always open, and I look forward to working together to make this your child’s best year ever!!!!
