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 for A LOT of years, and I am way older than you think! 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 mom to Jaxsen. He will be a Senior at Higley High school this year. We LOVE going to San Diego, playing in the ocean, and finding all the yummy places to eat in California. I have two BIG golden retrievers who I talk about all the time and my students will, for sure, come home with "Finn and Lili" stories. I can't wait to see everyone and to get started with a great year in kindergarten!
