Mrs. Julie Hurder

Welcome to the Reading Room at Irene King! Where we come to grow and learn as readers each and every day. My name is Julie Hurder and this is my 12th year teaching in the Valley View School District (the last 6 as a Reading Specialist at Irene King).  I graduated from Western Illinios University with a Bachelor's in Education and have a Master's degree in Reading & Literacy from Benedictine University. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children, reading, running, and watching the Cubs.
