|Julie Carpenter, 1st Grade Teacher|
Julie is from Lexington, Kentucky. She received a bachelor’s degree in education from Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky in 1993 and a master’s degree in education from Georgetown College in Georgetown, Kentucky in 2003. She taught 2nd and 3rd grade in the Fayette County Public School system for five years and 4th grade in the Clark County Public School system for two years. After staying home to care for her two children for five years, she returned to teaching. She has been teaching 1st grade at Calvary Christian School for the past eight years, and she loves it! She holds a current Kentucky teaching certificate for grades K-5th.
Julie and her husband, Chris, have been married for 21 years. They live in Winchester and have two children who attend Calvary Christian School. Their family is an active part of Calvary Christian Church. They enjoy hiking, riding bikes, gardening, and making each other laugh. One amazing opportunity they had in the summer of 2011 was travelling as a family on a mission trip to Village Project Africa in Makutano, Kenya (http://villageprojectafrica.org/). It was a life changing experience for each one of them.
