Helen Storer was nominated by her colleague, Mary Gallant.
"Helen is always there for her kids," said Gallant. "I have seen her miss her lunch so she could help a student out. She has also stayed after school just to make sure she has all the necessary things for her students to succeed, and her commute is incredibly long. I have always seen her be so patient with her kids. She is very stern, but silly when she needs to be! If a student gets a 100% on their behavioral chart and shows it to her, she will stop in her tracks and 'pass out on the floor.' The kids get such a kick out of it! She always lends an ear to students and staff. She has helped me through some tough times at work and has lifted my spirits with positive comments. I don't know if there is anyone at our school who doesn't get along with her. She brings a smile to everyone."
