Julie is a true Wisconsinite, loving the cold winter months and all. But--something we can all agree on--she shares in the passion of creating a hospitable and linguistically supportive classroom environment for her students. Julie holds a B.A. in Middle Childhood-Early Adolescence Education and Spanish Education, both of which she uses to teach middle school science in a bilingual setting at Notre Dame School of Milwaukee, WI. As an alumni of the ENL program (go cohort 15!), she is honored to come back as clinical faculty for the course “Foundations for Teaching Second Language Learners”. Outside of teaching and learning, she enjoys large iced coffees from local coffee shops, hikes wherever possible, and a good old-fashioned family game night.
