Julianne Taylor: Special Education


My name is Julie Taylor and I am a Special Education Teacher at Curtisville Primary Center.  I have taught at Deer Lakes since 2008.  Prior to Deer Lakes I worked for Colonial Intermediate Unit in Bethlehem, PA.  
I believe that all students can learn and accomplish great things.  Some students learn differently and that's what makes them special and amazing.  My goal is to create a safe, fun, and functional learning environment that all students make progress.  My philosophy of education is simple— when you communicate and are flexible, learning will happen. 
I am originally from Allentown, PA.  I attended Indiana University of PA and graduated in 2007.  I am married and have three, fun loving, boys.   I enjoy being outdoors with my family and reading various subject areas.  



My classwork is individualized per student.  If your student does have homework, please refer to their take home folder/binder.  

Special Activities

Cub Scouts

Every other Friday a Cub Scout leader, Kim Miller, comes to work with the students on adapted cubscout activities, as well as some life skills and some functional skills.  We are happy to have her and the kids are really excited!
