Julie grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania reading Laura Ingalls Wilder and Nancy Drew. Her schooling and life have taken her from Western Pennsylvania to New England, Nebraska, Washington, Georgia and Colorado. Along the way she collected not only a husband and two children, but a teaching certificate and Master’s degree in reading.
She has been teaching at Hillside since 2007 where she has enjoyed working with students from 3rd to 9th grade. When she isn’t teaching, Julie can be found golfing, skiing, practicing yoga, or volunteering with Girl Scouts. She also enjoys knitting, scrapbooking and of course reading.
