PK/Elementary Teacher of the Year - Julie Mitchen
"Julie Mitchen is a Northland treasure. She has devoted her life to the field of education for the last 40 years, serving 38 of those years right here at Northland. We are grateful for her service, commitment and dedication to the students, families and the elementary team over the years. She is leaving a lasting legacy of excellence in the Northland community."
"Julie has been a great example of what a teacher should be. She always has a smile on her face and is willing to help with any advice or guidance. She is an amazing teacher and I'm sure has touched many lives over the years."
"Julie is a light to all she encounters. She has dedicated her life to this mission of teaching in a Christian School and has impacted so many students, teachers and families over the years with the love of Jesus and her knowledge of math and Social Studies. Julie continues to truly enjoy the students. She laughs with them and makes learning fun and engaging every day. You never see her frustrated. She is constantly thinking of new ways to keep her students engaged and her teaching current. Her career has been a blessing to us as teachers, and many of our own children. We are proud to call her a role model and friend."
"It has been an honor to work with her. I love how she pours into her students. I was also so impressed how she handled working remotely during Covid and also how she juggled both when we were back on campus. I will miss seeing her daily."
