Employee Spotlight: Julie Gosney
For years I have always heard, “Time Flies.” I never knew how true that was until I realized that I have been teaching for 23 years. I have taught all 23 years here at Second Street School, my family refers to it as my second home. I have taught Kindergarten through 4th grade. I have seen 5 principals come and go, all of whom have left some tools for my tool box. I have taught long enough that I am now teaching the children of some of my former students; however, when the grandchildren start coming in, I might have to consider retirement.
My husband and I have been married for going on 24 years. He has been one of the biggest supporters in and out of the classroom. In the early years I coached our girl's middle school basketball program; remember those days Amy Dungan and Stephanie Starkey? I was also the head coach for the JV team at the high school for 6 years. I couldn’t have coached as long as I did without the support of my husband and mother. They managed to take care of my boys while I coached and traveled with the team. I have mentored students and athletes on and off the court. I am grateful for the teachers and staff who mentored my own children through their journey at Second Street and at FHS.
I am a Panther through and through, even though I attended a school across town that we shall not mention; I have been welcomed into the Panther family and their traditions. Watching my children become immersed in the Frankfort Way has been one of my fondest memories. I look forward to watching my youngest graduate and hand him his diploma as I did my oldest. Just one of the many reasons I love our district and my job.
