Julianne Spoor
Resident:Denton, Texas, United States
Photographer:Alaina Miller
Julianne Spoor has been teaching at her current school, Sam Houston Elementary in Denton, Texas, for fourteen years. Until six years ago, Mrs. Spoor was a special education teacher, but now she teaches general fourth grade education. Before teaching, Mrs. Spoor spent twenty years focusing on a career in business management. As a dedicated teacher, Mrs. Spoor believes that the special education program is rewarding in itself because stronger connections are built between student and teacher in a one-on-one environment.

When it comes to developed countries' education, she believes more online classes should be available to those who want a better education. As far as education in developing countries is concerned, she believes basic necessities such as food, water, and shelter should come first before worrying about the education system.

As a fourth grade teacher today, Mrs. Spoor believes in a curriculum that focuses more on engaging children in learning with hands-on work and interaction, and less on busy work. She believes in encouraging every student to reach their full potential, no matter what they want to do in life.
