Hello, my name is Julie Hurst and I’m so excited to teach 6th grade this year at Sycamore Ridge! I grew up in Valencia (near Magic Mountain) and went to UCLA for my bachelors and masters degrees (Go Bruins!). This summer my family and I relocated from Redondo Beach and have happily settled in San Diego.
This is my 13th year teaching and I am eager to get to know so many new students and their families. I hope to create a classroom where all students feel valued and safe to take risks in their learning. I hope to share my passion for learning with my students and look forward to learning from them as well.
When I’m not teaching or lesson planning, you can probably find me doing kid things with my two daughters (age 4 and 7). However, when I get the chance I love to run, read and eat chocolate. If you have any questions, concerns, or book recommendations please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
