Mrs. Julie Lopez

Hi! My name is Julie Lopez and I am so excited to be here at Sugarland for my fifth year as an ELL 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, and our two children, Megan and Nathan, and our dog, Dexter. My kids are 19 and 17. My daughter is in college at JMU-Go DUKES!!-and my son is a senior in high school. 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
