Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Julie Summers
Welcome to Heritage Middle School and 6th grade math! I am thrilled to be joining the amazing staff here at Heritage Middle School. I am one of those rare Idaho natives. I attended Boise schools and graduated from Borah High School. I received my degree in education from Boise State University. I have taught for 26 years in the West Ada School District, most recently at Paramount Elementary. No matter what level I taught, my favorite subject to teach was always math. Therefore, it seemed like a great idea to move to middle school and teach my favorite subject all day every day. I know that math can be an intimidating subject for a lot of students. It is my goal to give all students skills and problem solving strategies to navigate through the math curriculum, and to apply those skills to their real lives.
A few facts about me:
-My husband, Jock Summers, also teaches here at Heritage. He teaches World Civilazations across the hallway. I feel blessed to be able to work to with my husband and share our love and passion for teaching.
-We have three girls - Kara, Kendal and Kristen
-We are Disneyland fanatics. The 5 of us take a vacation to "The Greatest Place on Earth" every summer as soon as school gets out.
-My husband and I put on Rendezvous, a 4th grade history field trip. We put over 3,000 students through 40+ hands-on history stations. Even after 20 years, we still love it!
-In my spare time I enjoy reading, shopping at thrift stores and hanging out at coffee shops with friends.
