My name is Julie Harrington and I am one of the intervention teachers in the building. I am excited to be working with students through intervention groups at SPMA this year! This will be my 8th year in St. Paul, tenth year teaching and my first year at Music Academy. I have spent most of my career as a classroom teacher, teaching grades 2 and 4 for the majority of my career but also teaching combined classrooms of 2/3 and 4/5, as well as looping with a 4-5 grade community. My licensure is Elementary Education grades 1-6. I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from the University of Wisconsin at River Falls and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota.
I grew up primarily in Plymouth, MN but moved to Danville, CA for 3 years during middle and high school. My husband and I currently reside in Oakdale with our one child, Marcus and a dog named Bella. We spend much of our free time on the lake, with family, attending plays and at sporting events. My family loves all sports, but find ourselves spending much of our time supporting the Minnesota Lynx and Timberwolves. I love drawing, painting and really any form of art!
Looking forward to a fabulous school year!
