is hosting a "Meet the Teacher" party and I'm joining in!
My name is Julie. I've been happily married for 7 years, but have been with my husband since 10th grade. I love saying I married my high school sweetheart! He has a teaching degree in p.e., but teaches special ed...working on his master's in this. We have two beautiful daughters. They are so much fun! I graduated from Jacksonville State University with a bachelor's degree in Elem. Ed, and I received my master's from the University of West Alabama last fall! Yay! This is my 6th year teaching K, and I absolutely LOVE it! Oh, and I have an identical twin sister...and one older brother! I have the BEST parents in the world and am so thankful they raised my in a Christian home. I am so very blessed!
We love the beach so these are from this past summer...Destin of course.

Now tell us one random thing about yourself:
I peel off the top crust only when I eat a sandwich and my bed sheets have to be perfect before I will even think about getting in!
Oh, and my twin sis and I show up in the same thing to church all the time without ever speaking of it...and we know what each other is thinking...ALL the time! So cool!
