Hi! I am Julia Stephens and so extremely excited about beginning my second year of teaching at Frenship High School!! Prior to teaching US History, I worked as a Certified Sign Language Interpreter for public schools for 16 years before going back to college and obtaining my Bachelors in History/Secondary Education in 2013, and Masters in History, 2015. Last year was my first year here as a full-time teacher, and it was probably the best year of my life!!! I worked as a substitute teacher at mainly Frenship High School, Heritage Middle School, Terra Vista Middle School, and Frenship Middle school for two years after graduating TTU in 2015. I CHOSE Frenship schools because Frenship Tigers ROCK! With a focus in US History at Texas Tech University, namely Revolutionary Period and 20th Century race relations in sports and music, I look forward to my continuing journey here!
I've been married to my husband, Sam, for 33 years. We have two sons, Vance, 32, and Zach, 27, as well as a super wonderful grandson, Liam, 4 years old. I love baseball-my team is the Astros (I was there through their bad years too!). I spend my free time watching movies, and playing with my "puppies,"--5 years old Penny, Chesapeake Bay Retriever, and 4 year old Tech, my black Great Dane!
I look forward to the 2018-19 school year. My door is always open!!
