her middle school students and found it hard to tear herself away from them at the end of the year! While in Mexico, she also volunteered at the Benjamin Franklin Library during her spare time teaching adult learners. Julia is a graduate of Colgate University. She lives in the greatest neighborhood of New York, Jackson Heights, where she was born and raised. Some of her hobbies are couponing, knitting, and spending time with family.
