Ms. Julie Saraceno

I am excited to start my 4th year as a Reading Specialist at Algonkian Elementary.  Go Bobcats!  I grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania and moved to Virginia after graduating from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Speech and Language Pathology.  I began my teaching career in Fauquier County, Virginia, where I taught at both the Elementary and Middle School levels.

After receiving my Masters Degree in Reading Education from the University of Virginia, I began teaching at Ashburn Elementary as a Reading Specialist.  I also spent 10 years running a home based business offering private tutoring and teaching Kindergarten Enrichment classes.

I returned to LCPS in 2017 as a Reading Specialist at Algonkian Elementary, where I love sharing my passion for reading with my students!  When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son and chocolate lab, Ruby.  I love traveling, baking, hiking and of course, reading!
