My name is Mrs. Julia Hosler. I graduated from Oakland University in 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and have a major endorsement in language arts, I completed my Montessori training after graduating with my teaching degree. I have most recently taught Kindergarten, so I am very familiar with the skill-sets your child needs to practice this year in order to be prepared. What excites me the most about teaching is introducing beginner techniques and skills to new readers and getting children excited about a variety of texts and becoming lifelong learners. It is my desire as an educator to help students grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally in a safe and inviting environment. My hope is that students will not only learn from me but that they will also learn from each other. I feel it is important for children to continue developing responsibilities and discover new things on their own. I am looking forward to a wonderful new school year.
