• Hello!  My name is Carolyn Helmick and I am so exciting to be returning to Little River for the 2021-2022 school year.  This will be my 6th year in LCPS, my 2nd year at Little River and my 16th year in education.  

    I will work closely with your child's classroom teacher to support their learning and help them reach their goals of listening, speaking, reading and writing English as well as access all parts of the curriculum. 

    I have lived in South Riding for 17 years with my husband Brian, my son Sean (JMU class of 2022) and my daughter Sloane (Freedom High School class of 2022).

    I love working out (especially outside), shopping, and the beach!  

    I believe that connecting with families is essential to providing my students with all the supports they need to be successful.  Please contact me by email anytime!
