Hello, Jaguars! My name is Julia Nolen, and I am so honored to begin my teaching career at Journey Middle School. I am originally from small town, Fayette, Alabama, and am a graduate of the University of Alabama. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education, English Language Arts in May of 2022 and recently completed my Master’s Degree also in Secondary Education from UA. I will be teaching 6th grade ELA and serving as the JMS Dance Team coach this upcoming school year!
I am new to the Madison area but have quickly fallen in love with all that it has to offer! My fiancé, Matt, is a Bob Jones High School graduate, so he has introduced me to this beautiful, welcoming community. I am so thankful for the opportunity to live here!
As I step into the classroom, I value creating an encouraging, supportive, and nurturing experience that promotes creativity alongside student effort and success. It is my hope that students will encounter growth in their reading and writing skills as we learn alongside one another. I look forward to a wonderful school year, Journey Jags!
