Meet Ms. Lane

My name is Julie Lane; my students call me Ms. Lane. I am excited to be your child’s 1st grade teacher this school year.  I have countless hours of classroom experience in a wide range of educational settings. I was a social worker and a parent advocate for Head Start’s early education program.  I have a Masters degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Colorado and a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Colorado in Boulder. I am certified in Elementary Education.

Learning is a continuous process; therefore my goal as a teacher is to educate students to become independent learners through rich and meaningful experiences in a nurturing and supportive environment.  I encourage students to become confident problem solvers. I will present curriculum that involves making learning at school relevant to life. I will incorporate various themes throughout the year that allow your children to participate in group and hands-on learning. I hope to instill in your children a true love for learning.

When I'm not teaching or planning creative activities for our class I enjoy skiing, shopping, movies, crafts, social events, and spending time with my friends and family.
