Julie Roberts joined the LCDS community in 2007 as a Kindergarten Assistant Teacher, before advancing into her current role. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1994. Julie began her career working in administration and human resources with an airline association in Washington D.C., and enjoyed traveling in her position. After spreading her wings, she settled down to work as a teacher at a special needs preschool in Maryland and her children’s preschool in Virginia. At LCDS, she found a program that supported her educational philosophy of nurturing the whole child, providing enriching experiences in all content areas and guiding children to become successful learners. In 2011, Julie became a Lead Kindergarten Teacher at LCDS. She is also a seasoned LCDS parent—she has a son, alumni Jake (‘14) and daughter Carly (‘18). In her free time, Julie stays busy at home with her family and four dogs. She enjoys cooking, planting and is an avid fan of HGTV and the Food Network.
