Julie Nariman is principal of the High School of Language and Innovation in the Bronx, New York, a school that serves over 80% of beginning English speakers, where Learning Cultures is implemented in all content areas.
Julie has worked in the New York City public schools since 2000. She taught secondary English for several years, mentored and coached first-year teachers in transfer high schools, and served as an assistant principal at Long Island City High School before writing a new school proposal. Julie also taught in Korea for a year. Her mentoring experience through New Teacher Induction, as well as her leadership work at Bank Street College, made her passionate about building great teams and helping teachers become masterful at their work.
Julie has worked over seas, in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and now the Bronx. Including the years she mentored new teachers and traveled to a different school every day, she has worked in over 12 different New York City schools with drastically different philosophies and approaches. Learning Cultures is the best thing she has ever seen in any school.
