Julia Fuette has been teaching history, literature, and composition since 2005. She has a B.A. in History and Political Science with minors in Religion and Social Science from Vanguard University, and an M.A. in American History and Government from Ashland University. As a scholar, Julia loves to study history with a focus on the conflict between liberty and slavery prior to the American Civil War, which earned her Ashland University’s Chairman’s Award for Outstanding Thesis/Capstone in 2012. She also teaches online as an adjunct professor of U.S. history for Mt. San Jacinto College. Julia’s main goal as an educator is to assist 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, hiking, and canoeing. Julia was raised in a Christian home and was homeschooled from K-12th grade. Early on 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 (and also a former homeschooled student), and they now live in beautiful “Big Sky Country” Missoula, Montana with their precocious and imaginative daughter Felicity. Julia is excited to work with Veritas students in the pursuit of knowledge and virtue within the context of a biblical worldview.
