My name is Julie Zhang, and I am proud to be back at Highlands! I will be teaching language arts, social studies, and science this year. I grew up in Sugar Land and am a graduate of Fort Bend ISD. I received my bachelor's degree in education from the University of Texas at Austin. After graduating from college, I became an ESL teacher here at Highlands for one year. Upon completing my first year of teaching, I moved overseas, got married, and taught at an international school in China for two years. After moving back to the states, I returned to Highlands. This will be my fifth year of teaching and my third year at Highlands Elementary. Teaching is a passion of mine, and I love getting to know each and every one of my students and look forward to helping them grow as learners as well as building their character. I feel so blessed to be able to have the opportunity to teach at Highlands and can't wait to meet you!
