Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Julia Hellstrom. I am so excited to be joining the Dominion Trail staff this year as a First Grade teacher! I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University (go Hoosiers!) and then began my career teaching 4th grade and then 7th grade. Most recently, I was the Co-Director at St. David’s Episcopal Preschool in Ashburn. In addition, I am on staff at Northern Virginia Community College as an Adjunct Instructor in the Early Childhood Education Department.
I have two children, Margaret (26) and Daniel (24), who grew up here in Ashburn Village. This community is my home, and am thrilled to be teaching here. In my spare time I love to read, walk, hike and spend time by the water.
I believe in the unique giftedness of each individual, and I am committed to help my students recognize their gifts! I look forward to getting to know each of you as we work together to make this a magical year.
