Mrs. Julie Lopez

Hi! My name is Julie Lopez and I am so excited to be here at Sugarland for my tenth year as an English Language teacher. This year I will continue to work with 3rd graders. I just LOVE Sugarland and all of your wonderful children who I am lucky enough to get to know and teach!  I feel privileged to be working with them. It is such a thrill to see them grow, learn, and mature throughout the year.
So, a little bit about me....I worked for LCPS as a cross-category special education assistant for seven years. Prior to that, I worked as an auditor in the corporate world. My absolute passion is working with children and seeing them grow and learn as they gain confidence, academic knowledge, and the skills to succeed in life. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction for English Language Learners from George Mason University.
I live in Ashburn with my husband, Hector. I have two children. Megan, my daughter, graduated with a nursing degree from James Madison University and is working as a Surgical/Trauma nurse at UVA hospital in Charlottesville. My son is a senior at Old Dominion University where he is studying Informational Technology. He will graduate this December!  When I'm not working or studying, I love hiking, reading, cooking, and spending time with my family and friends. I speak SOME Spanish but my goal this year is to become more fluent! I can't wait to meet and work with your children this year. Please don't hesitate to contact me for any reason. My email is
