Ms. Helen Mathews

Welcome! This is my first year living in North Carolina and teaching at Cox Mill High School. I am originally from the U.K., and after graduating from university in 2007 I began travelling and teaching ESL. While living and teaching in Korea, I completed my Master's degree in Teaching and taught ELA and humanities at an international school. I am now settled with my husband in the Charlotte area, and I'm excited to be a part of the Cox Mill team! When not at school, I can usually be found crafting or chasing after my two sweet but poorly-behaved dogs.


Please feel free to contact me with any question or concerns!
