We were delighted to have Julie Bozhor join our kindergarten team a few months ago. She is sporty and brave, and knows how to bring fun to the classroom. Read all about her here.
1. How long have you lived in the Bay Area, where did you come from and what brought you here?
I have lived in the Bay Area for 12 years. I had lived in Southern California in the Los Angeles area and in San Diego my whole life. I always wanted to live in the Bay Area and I had family living here, so I made the decision to move to the Bay Area. I love it!
2. What is your role at Hausner and how long have you been here?
I just began teaching at Hausner at the beginning of November! I am the Kindergarten General Studies Lead Teacher. I am so excited to be a part of the Hausner family.
3. What was the highlight of your working week?
The highlight of this week was when Reader-Man, who is friends with Spiderman, left my students a special note and gifts! He left them superpower pointer sticks and capes—they use these sticks to point to words as they read. My students loved the gifts and wore the capes as they completed lessons during our Phonics, Writer's, and Reading Workshops. We also did Star Wars Yoga! This was especially fun as my students did Yoga for over 20 minutes.
4. What do you do when you're not at work?
When I am not at work, I love to go hiking! I also enjoy watching Travel shows.
5. What do you think you would do if you weren't a teacher?
I've been a teacher for so long, I can't imagine doing anything else. If I have to choose something that is not related to the Education field, I would choose to be a Sportscaster! I love sports.
6. Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
A fun fact about me is that I love Disneyland and rollercoasters! My daughter and I love to visit Disneyland!
7. What is your favorite Hebrew word?
Kavod is my favorite Hebrew word because it's such an important word for children to learn and understand in Kindergarten. Showing Kavod towards peers, adults, and community members is such an important life long lesson.
