My name is Julia Betman and I am really looking forward to being a second grade teacher at Washington. It will be my second year in District 63 and I am so excited to be a part of the outstanding community of teachers. I grew up in Northbrook, Illinois and graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2021. I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Leadership Studies. When I am not in school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and traveling. I can’t wait to work with all of the amazing students at Washington this year!
