Ms. Julie was born and raised in Portland, Oregon where she studied Psychology and Elementary Education at Portland State University.
She taught Pre-K at Oregon Episcopal School before moving to Fort Hood, Texas. Ms. Julie received multiple service wards from the US Army for her dedication to the families and service members within the community.
In 2008, Julie moved to Houston, Texas, where she became the Assistant Director at St. James Episcopal School in Conroe. In 2010, she earned her National Directors Credentials and opened Champions Academy in Houston.
Ms. Julie is excited to be part of the Avalon Academy community and working with our families to ensure the school remains a wonderful place for students, parents and staff.
One of the key statistic parents are told to look for when selecting a preschool or infant care facility is low staff turn-over. With an average of nine 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 in order 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.
