Meet our Teachers!
Mrs. Julie Jahp
Julie's passion for learning and teaching has been a lifelong endeavor. Her undergraduate degree and master’s program focused on early childhood education. She taught 16 years at a preschool in Lake Forest, Illinois, before moving to Utah 8 years ago. Between 2012 and 2019, she worked as the Director of Deer Valley Academy and Supervisor of Deer Valley Children’s Center.
As an educator and parent of six children, Julie appreciates the PCCP philosophy of parents and teachers working together to provide a nurturing environment and close-knit school community. Each day and throughout the year, her goal is to create a classroom environment that fosters creativity, curiosity, and learning by encouraging children to engage and explore their world through play while having fun. Children remind us that each day is an opportunity to learn and grow.
Julie's other passions include her family, her dogs Augie and Wesley, being out in nature, practicing yoga, and teaching kids yoga. She also loves collecting heart-shaped rocks!
