Prepare students to successfully meet
the challenges of the future.
Hi! Welcome to my page! My name is Julia Appel. I moved here from New Jersey in 2013 after I graduated from West Chester University of Pennsylvania (West Chester, PA) where I studied Elementary Education with minors in Reading and Spanish. I am working towards my Masters in Literacy with a Reading Specialist certification endorsement. I am a literacy lover and a supporter of a cooperative learning environment. My room is constantly a “buzz” with authentic engagement as students share ideas, explain thinking, create new things, and investigate interests and wonderings. Our classroom culture is designed to encourage students to think critically and help each other reach goals. I instill a growth mindset with the “Power of YET” to support students where they are and move them forward on their own pace towards success. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call. Thank you!
