What do mountain photographer, cowgirl, and veterinary anesthesiologist have in common? All are professions Julia Tatsch held before deciding to become a teacher. From Wyoming to Maine, from New Mexico to Massachusetts, Julia has visited and worked in a multitude of schools, Montessori and otherwise. Most recently, she taught middle school at nearby Milton Academy. She is so pleased to have found a healthy, thriving place like Wellan to bring her experience and ideas. Earlier in life, Julia earned her BA and MA in English Literature from Colby College and Middlebury, respectively. While she has worked with students of all ages, from infants to seniors in high school, middle school is where she finds herself most at home.
Besides working with teenagers, she loves skiing as often as possible, gardening, photography, being on the water and spending time with her son, Owen, who is excited to finally enjoy the responsibilities of being a third year in the Lower Elementary program at Wellan.
