Student of the Month Award October 2013

Helga Alexander
Major: Teacher EC-6, 4-8, EC-12
GPA: 3.59
Northeast Lakeview College

Helga Alexander is the recipient of the October 2013 La Prensa Foundation Inspirational Student of the Month award and will receive $500 funded by La Prensa Foundation founded by Amelia and Tino Duran.

Ms. Alexander has been at Northeast Lakeview College for 3 years and has completed almost 60 hours. A native of New York state, Helga Alexander has called many places home. At the age of 8, her family migrated to Guadalajara, Mexico where Helga spent the rest of her school-age years. While there, through the American School Foundation, she earned a high school certificate and took some classes in design. She made her money by designing beach wear and taking odd modeling jobs.
In 1989, Ms. Alexander missed the states so she moved back to be closer to her sister and ailing grandfather. Her sister was a student at Texas State University so she ended up in New Braunfels, TX. She began work at the Senior Citizen’s Center there and completed her GED.

Now, a loving mother, she has decided to go back to school and earn a college degree. She says that her decision to major in education became apparent when she volunteered at her son’s elementary school. “I fell in love with helping children learn,” she says. “And I want to do this as a career.”

Her nominators praise Helga’s “curiosity, collaboration with the other students, and contributions to classroom discussions.” She was always “eager to learn,” they noted.

 
Ms. Alexander plans to complete her Associate of Arts in Teaching very soon and transfer to either Texas A&M-San Antonio or UTSA to complete her Bachelor’s degree in Education. Her ultimate career goal is to become an elementary school teacher and work in an English as a Second Language environment.
