About me

    Julie Larracuente


My name is Julie Larracuente and I have been teaching Preschool at St. Mark School since it opened in 2008.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood from The University of Connecticut.  Teaching Preschool-age children is very rewarding and I am very blessed to be a member of the St. Mark Community.   Preschool is an important milestone in your child’s life and I strive to make your child’s first experience with school fun and exciting each day!
