Alumni Spotlight: Julie (Macke) Hale '02

What is your current occupation?
6th Grade Teacher at Holy Cross Lutheran School
What led you to your current occupation?
I always loved working with younger kids, so going into elementary education was a natural and easy step to take.
What was your education after Concordia?
Bachelor's in Elementary and Special Education from the University of Saint Francis Masters in Education from Indiana Wesleyan University
What did you love most about CLHS?
My favorite part about high school was the time I spent with friends on the soccer field and in choir. We pushed each other to get better and knew we could rely on one another when we needed to. We knew they would be there to help us through tough situations and pray for and with us.
What advice would you pass along to students?
My advice to students is to remember that high school is such a short time in our lives. Surround yourself with people who lift you up when you are down, and challenge you to not only be a better person but also a better Christian.
