Julie is a recently retired classroom teacher, having worked as a special education teacher and a classroom language arts teacher. She has taught all grades K-8. During her last 15 years, she worked as a middle school teacher in Cherry Creek School District.

Julie is also a frequent presenter at both writing conferences and conferences for teachers. She has led many workshops in the schools for young writers, and currently works as a writing coach. She feels lucky that her passion for teaching fueled her writing while at the same time, her passion for writing and reading informed much of what she did in the classroom.
