Julie Mitchell

Welcome to World Cultures!  World Cultures is a class designed to explore other cultures around the world from a variety of viewpoints. Students will understand the aspects of culture and study the geography, history, economy, government, religion, and past and current conflicts of each region. Students will be expected to participate respectfully in discussion, think critically, and write in a clear and concise manner. This class will cover Europe, Africa and the Middle East in the first semester and Russia, Asia, and Latin America by the second semester.

A bit about Julie Mitchell:  I grew up in the Flathead Valley.  After receiving my BA in History at Stanford University, I lived in Tokyo, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco before settling in Helena with my husband Doug and raising two children.  Professionally, I have worked in government, small business and non-profits prior to receiving my teaching certificate and Masters degree from MSU and joining the Helena Public Schools.  I am passionate about my family, public education, Montana, the outdoors and travel.
