Hello! My name is Julie Forshey and I am a Special Education Teacher at McAuliffe Heights at Irving Elementary School and Juniata Elementary School. I spend my day between the two schools teaching at MHI in the morning and Juniata in the afternoon. At Juniata I work with the Life Skills Support classrooms along with teaching small groups for Learning Support.
This is my second year teaching within the Altoona Area School District. I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the spring of 2015. I have a dual certification in Early Childhood Education and Special Education.
It is my educational goal to teach students to their full potential. I collaborate with students, teachers, and parents regarding new teaching approaches constantly. If you have any questions for me or new ideas on how to better the students at Juniata please feel free to contact me at anytime!
