A California native, Julia spent several formative years at Marlborough School and then went on to UCLA, where she majored in English and minored in art history. Soon after, Julia married her wonderful husband, Rob, and earned her teaching credential. She began teaching at High Point in 2009 and has loved every minute of it! In 2013, Julia received a Master of Arts in education (with an emphasis on language and literacy) and became a certified reading and language arts specialist. In her free time, Julia loves to devour books (19th century British lit and historical fiction are her favorites), play the piano, cook, watch Masterpiece Theatre, and travel to historical places.
