Julia Patterson

Preschool Threes Teacher
I have a BFA in Acting from the Conservancy of Performing Arts at Point Park University in Pittsburgh. I have taught and led the Early Childhood Theatre Education Program at Imagination Stage for five years in Bethesda, Maryland. I was also Professional Teaching Artist at two local youth theatre programs here in Louisville as well as a Professional Storyteller with the Blue Apple Players. I am also a two-time children’s book author and playwright.
 
I believe that play is ‘the work’ of early childhood and find the Chance philosophy to be perfectly aligned with my views on education. I bring with me to Virginia Chance School over ten years of experience educating, empowering and working creatively with young children. I love bringing stories to life with small children by having them participate in the storytelling, and I’m excited to bring that gift to Virginia Chance School.
