Julie S.

Director

My name is Julie and I am the Director of AppleTree - Monroe Avenue. 

I grew up in the Grand Rapids area and attended college at Grand Valley State University in Allendale.  I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and spent several years as a substitute and paraprofessional.  In 2010, I realized my passion for working with young children and returned to school to study Early Childhood Education.  I came to AppleTree in 2011 as a Lead Toddler Teacher and accepted the Assistant Director position in 2013 after receiving my Early Childhood Education endorsement.  I am currently working on completing my Master's Degree.

I feel truly blessed to be able to work with parents and their children and be a part of the AppleTree family.

Come join our dynamic, professional teaching team and make a difference in a child's life today.
