About Mrs. Forkner
by Julie Forkner
My name is Julie Forkner. This is my 30th year of teaching. I have been at Bronaugh for 22 years. I teach Kindergarten and I am the After School Director. I am married to Mike and have 2 children. Mandy, my daughter, is the Kindergarten teacher at Exter and is married to Steven, and my son Austin who is a Professional Motocross Racer. We have 3 dogs, Jo, Racer, and Gus, and a cat.
I spend my weekends traveling all over the country watching my son race motocross. This past year he was the Amateur Racer of the Year and won the Monster Cup held in Las Vegas and televised on TV and in 134 countries. He just got his professional contract and races a 250cc and is 16 years old. My daughter has followed in her mother's foot steps and is a wonderful early childhood teacher. Her husband, Steven works as a supervisor at Georgias in Exeter, Mo. I have been blessed. I love my family very much. And I must mention that my best friend is Sherry Brown the PAT Coordinator at Nevada. She is my best friend!
My main objective is teaching my Kindergarten students to love learning! I want them to learn to read, write, and work with numbers and all about life as a kindergartener. I also want to encourage teamwork, respect, responsibility, honesty, and other character skills.
