Secondary Curriculum Development

In Julia's Words: 


In Mrs. Ashe’s third grade classroom, I wrote an essay about wanting to become a teacher.  I never waivered. Watching teenagers discover the world and themselves and exposing them to the power of the written and spoken word has been a more fulfilling career than I could have dreamt.  And after 30 years in the classroom, I found that supporting other teachers in their important work is a good way to pay it forward in a district that has provided my children - all Lakota alumni- an exceptional education, and inspired my work as an educator.  

I majored in English and Speech Communication at BGSU, and received my Master’s degree from Wright State in Educational Leadership.  I taught high school in NW Ohio for 9 years before moving to West Chester with my husband and taking a job at Liberty Junior, where I taught for 21 years.  For the past 8 years, I have worked in the Lakota Curriculum Department. 

Outside of school, my husband and I spend our time traveling to see our three children (one in Ohio and two in Florida) and extended family.  I love working with horses, sewing and crafting, reading and gardening.

I can work beside you or behind the scenes to develop resources, find solutions to reach challenging students, plan units or explore materials.  

I have a passion for co-teaching, creating young adult readers and writers, and training students in the art of effective communication.

I can support new teachers, new ideas, and new approaches to instruction.  I am happy to be an extra set of hands, a sounding board, a critical friend.

 

My Favorite Things

I love nothing more than time with my family, at home or on the beach. I love quiet evenings reading on the patio or working in my flower beds. 

  

In our house, hope springs eternal as we root for the Reds and the Browns!
