Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Julie Fruit-Cobb

My name is Julie-Fruit and I am originally from the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA. I went to college at Penn State where I got my undergrad degree in Environmental Interpretation. I enjoyed informal teaching so much that I decided to go back to school to become a classroom teacher. I earned my Masters in Teaching in Elementary Education and Middle School Science from the University of Washington in Seattle. This will be my 16th year teaching! I taught 3rd grade, elementary science, and preschool before coming to MECME.

I live with my husband, 3 boys (a second grader and kindergarten twins) and our dog Winslow. Our house is always very loud and active! We love camping and exploring outside as a family. I enjoy running and my bucket list is to run a half marathon in every state!

I am excited to get to know the MECME community and have fun learning together!


Why I like working with children...

I like working with kids because they are so curious and full of energy! They usually aren't afraid to ask questions have fun exploring new topics. I also love how honest they are and aren't afraid to share their opinions.
