B.S. Elementary Education (K-6)

Mrs. Jenny Helton

My name is Jenny Helton, and this is my first year teaching at CCHS. I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Athens State University. I have taught 3rd grade, and in post-secondary education. I am so excited to be back in the P-3 classroom. I love my students as my own, and seeing them excited about learning makes teaching so much fun! I try to create a safe and fun environment in my classroom, where students know that they are genuinely cared for.

I have been married to my husband, Jon, for almost 15 years. We have 3 children- Dawson (12), Walker (8) and Olivia (5). We are always on the go between sports and extra-curricular activities. I have a deep love for all things Disney. My dream job would be performing as a cast member at Walt Disney World. We enjoy camping as a family, especially at the beach!

This is going to be the best year in the Sunshine Class, and I'm so thankful to be their teacher!

Mrs. Summar Hampton

My name is Summar Hampton. I have been married to my husband, Lane, for two years this past May!  We have one dog, Duke, and one cat, Luna. This is my second year at CCHS as an Auxiliary Teacher. I currently have an Associates in Applied Science- Child Development and an Associates in Liberal Arts. I just started attending Athens this past summer where I will be obtaining my Early Childhood Education degree. Seeing just how much young children learn and grow in a short period of time is what made me choose this career path. It is simply amazing. I am looking forward to this school year!
