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 second 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.
