    Melissa Helmick
    Grade 2
    Hello and welcome to 2nd grade! My name is Melissa Helmick. Let me tell you a little about myself. I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Duluth. After college I moved back to the twin cities in pursuit of a teaching career. After a short time substitute teaching, I got my first teaching job at Dugsi Academy a charter school in St. Paul. I spent three years as a 2nd grade teacher at Dugsi Academy before I started teaching at Oakdale as a 4th grade teacher in the fall of 2012. I am excited to be back in 2nd grade! 


    When I am not at Oakdale I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, and my basset hound Bailey. We enjoy hiking, camping, and taking road trips together. One of my favorite trips was to Glacier National Park in Montana. 

    I look forward to a great year of growing, learning, and fun in 2nd grade!!!
