Mrs. Julie Saccuman

2nd Grade Teacher


My name is Julie Saccuman, and I have been teaching at Prairie Winds Elementary since 2014. I have been working in education since 1990. I graduated with a B.A. in Child Development from Sacramento State and have a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from UCCS. I had the opportunity to teach in Italy and Germany in the Department of Defense Dependents Schools for seven years.

My husband, Pete, and I have been married since 1997 and moved to Colorado Springs from Europe in 2004. We don’t have children, but have a Golden Retriever named Milo. We love hiking, playing golf, and traveling. 

I look forward to meeting you and being your child’s 2nd grade teacher next year.
