My name is Julie. I graduated from the University of Iowa in Math, then I went to Indiana University to get my teaching certification. I am in the process of renewing my teaching license in Indiana. I taught for 5 years at Bloomington High School South in Bloomington, Indiana. I taught pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry over the course of that time. I resigned 10 years ago to take care of my three kids. My oldest is 10 and my youngest are 7 year old twins. I have been married to my very supportive husband for 18 years. I like to be with my family, be outdoors, read, and cart my kids to their after school activies. I was born and raised in Iowa (GO HAWKS!). I have lived in Texas, Indiana, Illinois, Nebraska, and now presently living in the state of Illinois for the second time.
My 2 learning goals are: 1.to understand and be able to bring writing and/or journaling into the classroom and, 2. get motivated and excited about going back to the classroom. I have been gone for a while, so I’m a little nervous about the jump back into my former profession. I’m hoping to get ideas and confidence into my teaching style.
