My name is Mrs. Julia Happe. I am a fourth grade teacher at Nixon Elementary School. I love teaching and love getting to know my students! In the past, I have taught third grade. I graduated from The College of New Jersey with a degree in Elementary Education and English and a minor in Communication Disorders. I believe in creating a safe environment for all students to explore and learn from their mistakes. In my classroom, learning is FUN, and all students are encouraged to exceed their own expectations! We will be focusing on having a growth mindset this year where we will "train our brains" by challenging ourselves, making mistakes, and learning from those mistakes. We know that if something doesn't work, we need to try something else, and we will all be supporting each other and learning from each other as well!
