My name is Julie Higgins and I am proud to be a part of the team of educators at Blossom Hill. 2016-2017 is my 20th year of teaching, and my tenth year in first grade at Blossom Hill. In addition to first grade, I have taught second grade, kindergarten and a K/1 combination. I especially love working with first graders because they have such wonderful curiosity and excellent attitudes toward learning.
I received my BA and elementary teaching credential from San Francisco State University. I live near the beach in Santa Cruz and enjoy camping, hiking, reading and spending time with my friends, family and pets.
