Julia Fuette has been teaching history, literature, and composition since 2005. She has a B.A. in History and Political Science with a minor in Religion and Social Science from Vanguard University in California. In 2012, she earned a Master’s Degree in American History and Government from Ashland University in Ohio. As a scholar, Julia focuses on early America with a focus on the conflict between liberty and slavery prior to the Civil War, which earned her the Chairman’s Award for Outstanding Thesis/Capstone at Ashland University. She has worked at both private and public high schools, and she worked for seven years as an adjunct professor of U.S. history at Mt. San Jacinto College. Julia’s main goal as an educator is to guide students in learning how to think critically, analyze objectively, and discern truth. She is passionate about the pursuit of knowledge and thus spends her spare time reading and listening to podcasts. She also loves to embark on outdoor adventures with her family – skiing, biking, and canoeing. Julia was raised in a Christian home and was homeschooled from K-12th grade. Early on in life, she developed a love of reading and history, which by high school resulted in a public profession of faith and a desire to glorify God within the realm of teaching. In 2005, Julia married her husband Ryan who is a firefighter/paramedic (he was also homeschooled), and they now live on 14 acres in beautiful Florence, Montana with their daughter Felicity Madison and their son Deacon Quincy. Julia is excited to work with Veritas students in the pursuit of knowledge and virtue within the context of a Biblical worldview.
