Teachers Learning from Teachers

Hi! My name is Julia and I am currently teaching 5th grade in San Diego! I am in my 13th year of teaching and have been blogging about my experiences since 2013. I love to learn, travel, write, listen to music and of course, I love teaching! You may find some travel posts here as I fulfill my love for learning about new cultures and experiencing new places on my time off. This past summer, I traveled to Tokyo, throughout Vietnam and spent the last few weeks of summer in Bali. I am continuing my love of the Spanish language and will be in Colombia during my Thanksgiving break. I will live with a Colombian family and take a weeklong intensive course of the Spanish language and cultural studies! By posting here I can connect with other teachers, spread the positive vibes from my classroom to yours and share ideas with you.

The healing process is an interesting one and it never ends (Bali)

I taught for a year in Costa Rica and surfed almost everyday while there. I have not surfed since and I live in San Diego! What is my problem?!

Jewel is my favorite singer/artist of all time. I was able to meet her on my 25th birthday!

This hat says it all! Mexico is a fun place to visit!

Went for a run to tour the memorials in DC

I drove from Philly to San Diego and met up with my sister in Denver

If you've never been to a lantern release, I highly suggest it! Incredible experience! 

You can also connect with me on Facebook and Instagram

I also share videos on YouTube for classroom organization and teaching ideas


  1. I love everything from you, Julia, that I have purchased and used in my classroom from TPT!!! Thank you for sharing your creativity!

    1. You are so very welcome! Thank you for leaving such a nice comment <3

  2. The prime point of a large number of the pathways is to quick track teachers into the instructing calling. This duped the essential teacher planning that imminent teachers need before turning out to be study hall teachers. taekwondo school in independence mo

  3. Being invested. A good teacher is invested in the subject and their students. It is important to know the subject material well but also to understand how the students might understand or misunderstand it, and to be aware of them and what they need.
