Julie Papp

I'm excited and honored to be entering my fourth year of teaching at Jeannette Rankin Elementary.  I previously taught 3rd grade in Houston, Texas.  I graduated from Montana State University (GO CATS!), and I'm currently pursuing my masters in Art Integration at the University of Montana. 

My husband Kevin and I have been married for 18 years and have lived in Missoula the past 11.  We have two daughters:  Hailey is a 6th grader at C.S. Porter and Sydney is a 3rd grader at JRE.  As a family we love being outdoors, playing boardgames, skiing, camping, and softball.
