Welcome to Harnett Primary School! I am Helen Shupe, and I work with the third grade team as a Literacy Coach. I have been in Harnett County since 1999, when I moved here to attend college at Campbell University. There I received my Bachelor of Science in December of 2002 and my Master of Education in May of 2008. I am originally from Virginia.

I have been teaching in Harnett County for going on 14 years. I taught at Cape Fear Christian Academy for four years - 6th grade (Math, Science, and Bible), 7th grade (Math), High School (Algebra II and Geometry), and 5th grade (Math, Science, and Bible). Then, I started teaching with Harnett County Schools in 2008. I taught at South Harnett Elementary, 4th and 5th grade, for 7 years. Now, I've been working with the amazing 3rd grade literacy team at Harnett Primary for going on 3 years.

It is my goal to prepare Harnett Primary School students for their future in a global society by engaging all students in high quality, research-based, best practice literacy instruction that will enable them to become proficient readers, thinkers, and learners in all content areas. However, this is a joint effort. I will need your help to ensure the academic success of your child. I ask that you read with your child, or ensure that your child reads independently, every night for atleast 30 minutes. I have provided some tools and guidelines to aid in this, so that it will be a time of building your child's comprehension and vocabulary. Together, we will make this an amazing year for your child.
