Julia Umstead

Director of Kinderfolk Preschool

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

My name is Julia Umstead and I have lived in Lewisburg for the past 6 years with my husband and 10 year-old daughter. I graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 2004 with a B.S. in Rehabilitation Services and in 2010 with my M.Ed in Adult Education. I was a preschool teacher from 2005-2011 at the Bennett Family Center at Penn State University. In my years at the Bennett Center,  I had the opportunity to mentor early childhood university students and acquire certificates in extensive early childhood development trainings. I had also conducted trainings pertaining to sensory integration and literacy in the classroom at early childhood conferences. I am very excited to be teaching young children again in my new place at Kinderfolk.
