Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Julie Yanekian and this will be my sixth year teaching EL at Cool Spring Elementary School. I am very excited to be here! I taught English in Fairfax County for 17 years before I moved to LCPS.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, and my Master’s Degree in Bilingual and Multicultural Education from George Mason University. I have also been trained in LLI, SIOP and Pathways.
I live in Leesburg with my husband and our cat, Shadow. I have one son who lives and teaches in Utah. I enjoy cooking, hiking, talking with friends and sightseeing. I also enjoy learning about new countries, cultures and people. I love reading non-fiction and one of my favorite traveling experiences is traveling throughout the Middle East and Europe with my family!
