1st Grade Teacher
Compass Elementary

My name is Mindy Hellbusch.  I am excited to be starting my 18th year as an educator.  I have taught 3rd grade, Kindergarten, and am really excited to begin teaching first grade this year at Compass Elementary.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a Business Minor from Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln, Nebraska. I have a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a Reading Emphasis from the University of Missouri and an Education Specialist in Administration from Arkansas State University.

My husband and I have two sons, Jace and Ryder, who we get to cheer for in soccer, basketball, baseball,  track, and football. I love the outdoors and am outside every chance I can get.   All four of us are scuba certified so we love traveling and a dive adventure when we can get away!
