Mrs. Jo Hellmich

I have been a teacher at Silverhill Elementary School since 1993. I have taught all subjects in second grade, third grade, fourth grade, and sixth grade. I also taught fifth and sixth grade science for two years. I have a BS degree in Elementary Education through Troy University and Certification in Early Childhood Education through University of South Alabama.

My philosophy of education is learning should be fun! I strive to deliver lessons that actively engage students and create a joy for learning. I am a consultant for NASA curriculum, and I really enjoy teaching science. I am a co-sponsor of Science Club. 

I am married to Ralph Hellmich of Foley. We have three children and one amazing grandson! My hobbies include cooking for friends and family, spending time at our beach house on Mobile Bay, playing the piano, singing, and traveling. My favorite thing to do when I’m not at school is play with our three small dogs, Bebe, Coco, and Bandit.

An anonymous quote states, "If you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life." I truly love being a teacher at Silverhill Elementary School.
