Julie Grahlmann

Mrs. Grahlmann was born and raised in Sparta, New Jersey.  Throughout college, she volunteered much of her time assisting in the school where her mother taught. She knew early on that teaching was the path for her. She graduated in 2010 with honors from Penn State with a degree in Elementary and Kindergarten Education and a minor in Special Education.   After graduating, she married her husband Anthony, and moved to the Chicago area where she was a third grade teaching assistant at Mill Street Elementary.  Eager to get out of the windy city and relocate to a warmer climate, they moved to Raleigh in June of 2011.  For the first year in North Carolina, Mrs. Grahlmann taught second grade at Eastlawn Elementary in Burlington (that was a long commute…), but in 2012 she was offered a third grade teaching position here at Root!  Having been in a variety of school settings, she can say without a doubt that Root is an incredibly special place to teach thanks in large part to the continuous outpouring of parent support. Along with Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Grahlmann is beginning the process of attaining her National Board for Professional Teaching Certification this year.  When not in school, she loves spending time with her family and friends, her fur babies Max and Blake, and being outdoors (preferably at the beach).
