Welcome to Mr. Helms World History Class

I teach both Advanced Placement World History and AP/GT Humanities II. I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in History Education from Tusculum College in Greeneville, TN. I am also the JVII Lions soccer coach. I am happily married to my best friend Hilary and we have two little guys named Jude who is just over six years old and Isaac around 8 months old.

On this website you will find almost all information needed for my classes. See the links at the top of the page for Advanced Placement current text book Ways of the World by Robert W. Strayer. However, if you have any questions students or parents please email me at or go to the McKinney ISD website.

Summer Reading:

Both AP and GT Humanities have the same summer reading. Currently up-to-date
