Hi! My name is Ms. Julie and I am so excited and privileged to be teaching English Language Learners at the Heights! I speak Spanish, and have spent time living in Costa Rica and Mexico, so I understand the challenges of learning a second language.
I grew up in Minnesota with family friends from Laos and Vietnam and like to learn about the cultures of SE Asia. I believe in multi-lingual learning, and hope that my students develop their home languages as they deepen their knowledge of English and learn to maintain their identities. I am open to learning all I can about the home languages and cultures of my students.
When I am not teaching or planning lessons, I enjoy reading, walking with friends (or my dog Geo), spending time near water, traveling, and trying new foods.
