Meet Julie Bradshaw, Health & Physical Education teacher and department chair for Plainfield High School. Julie is one of several long-time teachers who came to Plainfield as a young college graduate. 38 years later, we are fortunate that she continues to share her love for students with our community.
For 26 years, Julie coached the Varsity Girls’ swimming program.
While teaching is her first passion, Julie loves to help out at swim meets and school events for the different perspective it provides into her students' lives. She also enjoys being part of “a pretty amazing staff.”
If time weren’t an issue, you’d likely find Julie gardening, reading, at the pool, or watching TV.
Julie shares this message: “Be patient. The students who challenge us usually need us more than anyone else. They need our attention and will get it through positive or negative actions.”
