Julie Apel

Classical Pedagogy Trainer

Mrs. Julie Apel recently joined theK-12 Education team as the Classical Pedagogy Trainer. She formerly served as the Dean of Grammar School and Dean of Women at Founders Classical Academy of Leander where she also taught middle school Latin. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Education from Baylor University where she majored in English and previously taught literature in a public school setting before journeying into classical education. Subsequently, she has taught a host of subjects including literature, history, logic, composition, math, and science to students ranging from fourth to twelfth grade. Being a “jack of all trades” has given her the opportunity to think deeply about what it means to be a classical student and a classical teacher; she believes that both endeavors reap great rewards.
