My name is Julie Yongue. I've taught kindergarten, first grade and second grade in my 12 years of teaching. I am so excited about being a part of this journey with you and your child and enhancing your child's learning experience through art integration. Your child will experience many adventures throughout this year in their academics, friendships and our school community. They will explore learning through new outlets of visual arts, dance, theater and music allowing it to become meaningful and personal. 
Strong communication between parent, teacher and child promotes all around success in education so I can always be reached by email or by phone at 704-932-4161. Please remember my door is always open for questions, concerns or comments.

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a bachelor's degree in Elementary education K-6 and I have received my National Board certification.
Educational Philosophy/Vision:
Elementary school is a time for your child to explore who they are as a learner, allow their curiosities to guide their research and passion for education which will escalate their want to discover more about the world around them.. My goal as your child's teacher is to open up doors of understanding, exploration, fun and excitement and allow your child to learn in a way that is comfortable for them.
