Hi CMS! My name is Christal Helm, and I am starting my 3rd year as the counselor for students with last names starting with H-O. Before joining the CMS family, I was working as a special education teacher at McKinney North High School. Prior to moving to McKinney in 2015, I worked for several years as a high school and elementary teacher in my home town, Marion, IN. I enjoy coffee, patio weather, and being with friends and family. I am excited to continue to work with our amazing team at CMS!
