• Welcome to 5B! My name is Julie Bures and I have been teaching at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School since the fall of 2001.  I previously taught kindergarten and 3rd grade and this is my fourth year teaching 5th grade. I am an alumnus of Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School, as are my two children and my eight siblings.  I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education.  In addition, I have completed numerous continuing education courses.

    I reside in Cary with my husband Mark and have two adult children and two grandsons.  I love spending time with my family, taking walks and vacationing in Northern Wisconsin in the summer.  I am a true blue Kentucky basketball fan and love the Chicago Bears.

    The mission for the Class

    My mission is to foster a lifelong love of learning in a caring Catholic classroom.  All students are unique and learn in their own way, and I hope to always challenge them to do their personal best. I want students to grow spiritually, academically and personally in our year together.
