Hello to all!  My name is Julie Wilson.  I start and end my day with the 8th grade homeroom.  In addition, I teach 6th through 8th grade Math and Science.  This is my third year at Sacred Heart School, but I feel very much a part of the family!  My immedate family includes my husband, Dan, and 2 children, Meredith and Jack.  Meredith is in 3rd grade at Immaculate Conception School and Jack will be starting Kindergarten there next fall.  My extended family tree is certain to cross many branches of the family trees here at Sacred Heart.  Growing up as one of those "Timmins' of Edgegrove", there weren't too many in the area to whom there wasn't at least a distant relation or certainly some common thread.  I look forward to working with your children (AKA my scholars) throughout this year!
