Mrs. Julie and Ms. Shin
Hello! My name is Julie Oling-Valderrama and I am very excited to be joining Mrs. Little’s Kindergarten class as her parapro. After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Master’s degree in Education, I embarked on a career in education working as a college counselor at North Georgia College and high school counselor at the International School, Nido de Aguilas, in Santiago, Chile. I left the field to stay home with my children until they went to school. Since I love the little ones, I decided to get my teaching certification in Special Education and became a Special Education Preschool Teacher for eleven years. Once again, however, I decided it was time to start something new and different, so here I am.
My husband, Jorge, is from Chile, and we have been married for 30 years and have two amazing children, Lukas and Lily. Our cat, Fez, and dog, Mona, round out our family quite nicely.
