“Teaching young minds is an important job. First-grade students are special because they glow with excitement, wonder, and joy. As a teacher, I strongly believe that all children are capable of learning, especially if they receive the proper motivation and direction. First grade is the year when students need intimate, caring attention.”
Julie and her husband, Kelly, have two sons, one of whom is a St. Peter’s graduate.
