Executive Director

Mrs. Julie was born and raised in Portland, Oregon where she studied Psychology and Elementary Education at Portland State University. Her family moved to Houston in 2008 after her husband left the United States Army and his position at Ft. Hood, Texas.

Mrs. Julie’s career in early childhood development started out when she was a PreK teacher at Oregon Episcopal School in Portland, Oregon. She taught there for three years before moving to Ft. Hood, Texas. While her husband was serving in the United States Army at Ft. Hood Mrs. Julie became a liaison between the families of deployed soldiers and the services offered to them within the Ft. Hood Army Base community and the city of Killeen, Texas.

After moving to Houston, Texas, she became the Assistant Director of St. James Episcopal School located in Conroe, Texas. She then went on to open two more private preschools in the Greater Houston area.

While serving as Executive Director at Avalon Academy since 2013, Mrs. Julie has taken the school, and it’s structure to new heights.

Our teachers and staff

One of the key statistics parents are told to look for when selecting a preschool or infant care facility is low staff turn-over. With an average of twelve years working at Avalon Academy, our pre-school teaching staff is among the most stable and experienced in Houston.

Each Avalon Academy teacher receives on-going in-service training through staff meetings and at early childhood conferences and workshops held throughout the year. All of our teachers and staff members are trained in pediatric CPR, first aid and are screened with background checks.

Your child will remain with the same teachers throughout most of the day to develop a close and loving relationship.

Our teachers are available to share information each day. We also encourage you to speak to your child’s teachers or the Executive Director at any time with any concerns you have.
