My name is Julie McCleese. This is my 17th year of teaching. My entire teaching career has been spent here at Burlington Elementary. I have taught First, Second and Third grade.
I am a wife and mother of two. My daughter Lilly is in 4th grade and my son Drew is in kindergarten. We spend a lot of time camping, going to soccer games for my son and figure skating competitions for my daughter.
In my free time, which is minimal, I like to read, go to the movies and shop. Some of my favorite places to shop are Target, Kohl's and Macy's. My family and I enjoy eating out. Our favorite places to eat are Quaker Steak, Red Robin and Chili's.
Each year I look forward to getting to know a new group of students. We spend a lot of quality time together. I always learn so much about each student and am amazed at how different each and every one of them are. I try to tap into these differences and make their school day worth every minute. My goal is to teach them everything they need to know to exit 3rd grade successfully while enjoying it at the same time. I hope we can work together to ensure their academic success!
Let's have a wonderful year in 3rd Grade!
