My name is Julia Altenhofen (pronounced "ALL-ten-haw-fen"). I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. I was born in Seattle, WA in 1991 and have lived in Washington my entire life. I have a younger sister who is a chef and an older brother who manages commercial properties. I currently live in North Seattle with my fiancé, Shawn, and our three cats. I drive a Prius, I am passionate about my job, I love to watch the Seahawks play, and I enjoy karaoke night.
I went to high school at Eastside Catholic School in Sammamish, and graduated in 2009. I have an Associate's Degree in Arts and Sciences from Bellevue College, which I earned in 2012. In 2015, I received my B.A. in Elementary Education with a major in Special Education from Western Washington University.
