Julie grew up in Manhattan and now lives in Greenpoint with her husband and two sons. She earned her BA in English and worked in children’s book publishing before becoming a teacher through the New York City Teaching Fellows program.
She taught middle school special education while working towards her master’s degree at Queens College. She then worked as a school librarian while working on her degree in Library Science from Syracuse University.
Julie taught for two years at Positive Beginnings Preschool, working with 3- and 4-year-olds with special needs, before arriving at Mount Carmel, where her son was a student in the Red Room.
This is her third year as a Mount Carmel teacher after taking last year off to help her sons with remote learning. She is thrilled to be back!
