My name is Julie Culver. I was born in Anchorage, Alaska and lived there until I was 9. I then moved to Lake Charles, Louisiana and when I was 15, moved to Gilbert, Arizona. I like to say I am not the youngest of 4 because I was born 6 minutes before my twin sister. She doesn't like when I call her my "little sister" but sometimes I still do! She is a natural blonde and we don’t look like twins, but I promise that we are. I also have an older brother and sister.
I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. (Go Sun Devils!!) I have been teaching A LOT of years, and I am way older than you think, haha! I have taught second grade, a year in a 4-6th grade combo class, 1st grade and now I am planning on staying in Kindergarten FOREVER because I love it so much.
My most favorite job is being a mommy to Jaxsen. We LOVE going to San Diego to stay on my parent's boat, play in the ocean, and find all the yummy places to eat in California. He enjoys playing Little League and Club baseball, and I enjoy being a "Baseball Mom". (Yes, I have a t-shirt that says that. Embarrassing your kids is a parent's job, right?!) I have 2 big fat golden retrievers who I talk about all the time and my students will, for sure, come home with "Finn and Lili" stories.
