    GV Teacher/Staffer Spotlight

    Meet the great people that help make our school the wonderful place it is -- even from a distance!  

    Get to know Julie Ouye, from the 4th Grade Team! Mrs. Ouye was formerly Miss Conflenti, until she got married!                    

    Julie Ouye is in her 8th year of teaching, coming from previously working as a one-on-one aide for a kindergartner with special needs, as wellJulie Ouye and husband as a job in an after-school enrichment program. She considers herself luck to have been at Green Valley for all 8 years of her teaching career! She taught on the 2nd Grade Team for 5 years until she moved to the 4th Grade Team. Her favorite thing about her job is the connections she builds with the students. She loves to get to know their minds and their hearts, and strives to help them be successful. She tells her students that she defines success as being kind and helping to make the world a better place!

    Mrs. Ouye is another enthusiastic part of the Green Valley Theater Company, as she is on the team that leads GVTC to a fabulous show every year, along with Leanne Alexander (4th), Katie Robinson (3rd) and Nan Houghton (Kindergarten). She sees the students work SO hard to put on the show, and she enjoys being "behind the scenes" to see all the efforts come together into a wonderful performance, year after year. She also really loves to see the surprise on the cast's faces when she and the rest of the teachers put on the Teacher Act at the end of the show. This is only one part of a multitude of great GV memories for Mrs. Ouye, though!

    Mrs. Ouye and her husband just bought their first home in Livermore last year, so the pandemic has allowed them more time to spend in their home and she has enjoyed talking walks around their neighborhood. She loves to listen to live music, and really looks forward to when live concerts will be permissible again. She also cannot wait until she's able to hug her students again. The pandemic has really made her appreciate the resiliency of her students, such as watching them persevere and problem-solve their way through technology challenges. It is a lot to handle and they're doing it so well!

    The beach is Mrs. Ouye's happy place and she loves San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach, because she attended college at Cal Poly, and still roots for the Cal Poly Mustangs!

    Mrs. Ouye would like to say "Thank you to Green Valley for being so supportive of teachers. I love coming to work every day (even through the screen!) because of this amazing community. I can't wait to see you all in person again!"
