My name is Julie Renner and I have been teaching at Lakewood for the last six years. Prior to teaching at Lakewood, I worked with a Speech Therapist in an elementary school in Alaska. I have worked with several age groups. My husband was military, so we moved several times. I taught different ages between K-2 in South Dakota. I taught 2nd grade for five years and a few months of PE in Okinawa, Japan. I worked with birth to 3-year-olds in New Mexico. I taught a couple years of preschool after I graduated from Martin Luther College.
My father was also in the Air Force, so we moved quite a bit. My parents were originally from Minnesota, so I claim it as my home state! Go Vikings! My husband’s last assignment was to the base here in Washington and we decided to stay. We have two children that are both married. I enjoy spending time with family, taking walks, dancing, scrapbooking, playing games, playing sports and chatting with people.
