Welcome to the Northeast District ICDA webpage!

My name is Janet Helgerson and I teach at the newly formed North Fayette Valley CSD in the scenic northeast corner of the state. This is my 4th year serving as the NE District rep for ICDA.

I hope you will visit our page often. Please take advantage of the many and varied opportunities offered and supported by ICDA for you and your students. Have a great school year!
