Welcome to Hopkins and Room 109! My name is Allison Helton and I am a third grade teacher at Hopkins. Growing up as a Briar Jumper and graduating from Somerset High School, I started my college career where I obtained a Bachelors from Morehead State University. My first degree allowed me to work in the business world for over ten years, when I later decided to get my teaching certificate. While working full time, I attended Midway College and was then hired in the Somerset District. I then gained my Masters Degree from Union College. I feel that learning is important no matter what the age of the individual, you never stop learning! As a Somerset graduate I want to instill purple and gold traditions and high academic expectations to all my students. If you believe... you will succeed!
Please contact me if there is anything I can do to help your child at school. You may leave a message in the office and I can return your call during my planning time or at the end of the day. I also check my email throughout the day. Communication is very important for success. I look forward to working with your child this year!
