Mrs. Julie Brown

Mrs. Brown Welcomes You to 2nd Grade!!!

Hello sudents and families,


This will be my first year as a PUMA!!! I’m honored to be a part of the Polenta family and a part of your child’s educational journey. I value student and family relationships and see them as an integral part of academic success. Your child’s emotional, intellectual, social, and physical wellbeing are important to me; and I teach using a whole child approach. My methods are student sensitive; student traits, interests, preferences, and learning styles drive my teaching.


I have a strong understanding of child development and the family unit. The work that I have done and my educational background, with an emphasis on child and family studies, will serve you and your child well. I’ve worked in early childhood education, family education, parent education, special education, early intervention services and general education. 


I am a mother of five bright children - Alexis (19), Emily (17), Nicholas (15), Elias (6), & Benjamin (3). Most of my free time is dedicated to them and their interests. I cherish family time and find happiness in exactly that. Teaching is my passion and I am blessed to be able to do the work that I love. 

I cannot wait to meet you,

❤️Mrs. Brown
