As Director of Upper Elementary and JEDI, Julia loves the opportunity to support students, families, and teachers at Echo Horizon. Her passions include curriculum, instruction, and community-building. Julia recently completed her 10th year in education. Her career began at public charter schools in Brooklyn, NY and Washington, DC where she taught 5th & 6th grade. Later, she returned to Georgetown Day School—her alma mater and an independent school in Washington, DC—where she taught 6th-8th grades and served as a Grade Level Coordinator, Middle School Community Engagement Coordinator (6–8), and faculty advisor for Students of Color Mentoring.
Julia earned her undergraduate degree in History and certificate in African American Studies from Princeton University and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education. Julia is currently in the final stretch of her doctoral program at USC's Rossier Graduate School of Education. When she’s not reading history books for fun, Julia likes to cook, swim, sing in her car, and cuddle her dogs.
