Mrs. Julie Klemz

My name is Julie Klemz.  I am a graduate of Monroe County Community College (Associate’s Degree 1991), Michigan State University (Bachelor’s Degree 1993), and Eastern Michigan University (Master’s Degree 1997).  My Master’s Degree is in Special Needs. I received my ZS (early childhood endorsement) in 2020. This is my twenty ninth year of teaching, and my first year at Harbison West Elementary.  I am really looking forward to being a part of the Harbison West family of heroes! My family just moved to South Carolina from Michigan this summer! We are so excited to be living in the south with you all! My husband, Kent, and I are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters, Darby, age 19 and Lexi, age 17.  Darby is a sophomore @ the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!).  Lexi is in 12th grade at Monroe High School. We have a family dog, Lacy, a white lab, who is 8 years old.  I enjoy spending time with my family, exercising, traveling, baking, cooking, shopping, and of course teaching children!
