Our Support Partners
Student Support Coordinator
Hello friends and family of Prospect Academy! My name is D’Janay (Dee) Helmle, also known as Ms.H. I am a Registered Behavior Technician here at Prospect, and I am so excited to help build our school and our community.
I have been working with children and young adults with autism and other learning disabilities for over 5 years. I absolutely love working in ABA therapy, getting to know our students, and how their minds work.
Outside of Prospect you will usually find me baking something way too sweet, watching scary movies, attending a concert or finding a fun place to hang out with my wife and our dog!
Founding Support Partner
My name is Mattie Hankal (she/her), and I am from Atlanta, Georgia. I am excited to be at Prospect Academy in Colorado as a Paraprofessional while earning my Speech-Language Pathology Assistant certification. I earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a certificate in Disability Studies. I have worked in various childcare settings and outdoor classrooms including Special Olympics Georgia as a soccer coach and Vail Resorts as a ski instructor. These previous roles have cultivated a passion in me for creating a learning environment where students of all abilities and backgrounds can thrive.
My love for adventure brought me out to Colorado, and I so excited to be on this adventure at Prospect Academy with fellow staff and future students!
