Julie Coletti

1st Grade Teacher

Julie Coletti is new to Lumen this year and is excited to be the first grade teacher. She loves being a mother. She has 8 children, a niece, a dog, and a cat living with her, and she has homeschooled her children for 15 years . Julie has always loved teaching and has taught all grade levels.  Her favorite age to teach are young children.  Along with teaching, she enjoys learning, especially researching.  She has researched the origin of lullabies from around the world, then developed lesson plans for young children to teach them about the lullabies and apply them to principles,  She also loves music. She’s a percussionist in the Utah Valley Symphony, has taught percussion for a high school marching band, and taught a music preschool. In her free time, she enjoys the outdoors, especially hiking.  She finds and loses herself in the mountains (literally, she’s been rescued twice).
