Julie Cruz - 2nd Grade

Who? - Julie Cruz

What? - I teach second grade.
 

Background: I earned my teaching degree from Illinois State University and moved here in 1997 to begin teaching 4th grade in a Kansas City Catholic school. I came to Belvidere in 2007 and have had the opportunity to teach 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade here over the years. This is my 3rd year teaching 2nd grade and I am loving it! It has been a joy to see so many Belvidere families growing up over the years.
 

Personal Life (in under 10 words): two amazing kids, Leo (14) and Ella (13), supportive family, love cooking!
 

Best Advice: Treat others the way you would like to be treated :)
 
 
 
Suggested book to read before graduation: "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" by Dr. Seuss
 

What are you learning right now? - I'm learning strategies for teaching virtually! I'm also working on my master's degree to be a reading specialist.
