Overview

Tom Julius has eighteen years experience learning from children in both rural and inner city schools. His teaching is grounded in theory from his studies at the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study, Tufts University, and graduate work at Antioch and UMASS/Amherst, as well as in practice from teaching kindergarten, second and third grades. His work with teachers has focused on portfolios and other authentic assessment practices. He has been a national presenter of whole language, hands-on math and integrated curriculum workshops. In addition to his work with Antioch, he is also a founding board member of the Surry Village Charter School in Surry, NH.

Our students are passionate, thoughtful, professional educators. Their energy and commitment to life-long education is inspiring. My job is to help them think about their teaching, work towards goals they set for themselves, and assist them in creating innovative schools and educational programs. I draw on my own experience teaching in public schools and my ongoing hands-on work with educators to stay current with challenges that our students face.
