From a family of teachers, Helen has been a social studies educator for over 35 years. As an advocate for progressive education and a lifelong resident of the neighborhood, Helen was delighted to see a child centered school open in Bay Ridge and cheered on the school’s growth from the sidelines. In 2006 she joined BRP and now cheers for it as a proud member of the community. In addition to teaching middle school social studies, Helen also chaired Bay Ridge Prep’s NYSAIS accreditations. Helen enjoys time with her family and friends, traveling, listening to a wide array of music, going to the movies, and living by the Narrows. Helen is also the owner of two rascally canines.
