Julie is from California and grew up around many different cultures with many languages being spoken, which led her to develop an interest in other cultures from an early age.
Meeting people from different backgrounds and learning about her students is fun and exciting for her. She has extensive teaching experience and has taught overseas. She has been teaching with E-Teacher for about 8 years now!
Julia completed an MA in Education from the U. of Missouri with an emphasis in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) in 2001.
She has been teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) for many years, beginning with tutoring immigrant students while in college in California. This experience fostered a desire in her to continue her studies in this area; especially after having the experience of teaching in China while completing her B.A. Since then, she has worked in public schools and universities in Missouri and overseas.
