Julie’s Bio

I have a BA in creative writing and a minor in education. Currently I have a fairly open and flexible schedule. I recently relocated from Tulsa, OK to Huntsville, AL to be closer to my family. I spent my late childhood and teen years in Huntsville.
I do not have any children of my own, but I have always been around children because my mother runs a church nursery and cared for children in our home. I love to work with children because I believe that we have a responsibility to care for those who need it--and children certainly qualify for that! There is a short window of time during which we can influence and set a child on a good path, and I take every opportunity to help a child develop good social skills, good reasoning skills, compassion, and strength of character.
I do not use any form of punishment when I care for a child, but that does not mean that I allow children to run about undirected. My approach is to keep a child engaged and active in the process of learning. I address discipline issues with redirection and compassion. Of course, if one child is threatening another, I separate them. Short of that necessity, my goal is to help a child learn to make the right decision, not to condition a child to submit to the will of another.

Julie is a no-nonsense child expert; and I do not use the expert term loosely. She understood my child's needs and he hated having her out of his sight. More importantly (for my situation), Julie was able to adjust to changing conditions. She was supposed to stay at my home for the duration of my time away but became trapped at her home due to closing of roads during the snow-storms. She safely made her way to my home at the earliest possible time and was able to pick me up at the airport when my flight plans changed my arrival location.
