My name is Julie Eakle. I grew up in Short Hills, New Jersey .  It was a lovely, small town. I attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville , Tennessee where I swam on the swim team and graduated magna cum laude with a B. S. in Elementary Education.

I taught for five years in a small town outside Nashville , Tennessee . Then I moved to the great city of San Antonio .  I began teaching at Thornton in the fall of 2000 after teaching at Oak Hills Terrace for ten years.

I like to swim, play games, and go camping. I have a standard poodle. He likes to eat paper, shoes, toys and anything else he can find or catch. My hobbies are arts and crafts, using computers, and reading. I also compete on a Master's swim team. 
I enjoy working with children to help them grow to be well-rounded students and creative thinkers. I like to teach using hands-on activities and projects. I am looking forward to a great year at Thornton !
