I graduated from the University of Texas in 1997. My husband Ken and I were married in 1998 and our daughter, Jessie, arrived on the scene in 2000. I grew up all over the world because my dad worked for the U.S. Government. I graduated from The American International School, Vienna, Austria, and then the University of Texas at Austin.  I am a proud third generation Longhorn. In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching my daughter play basketball for Vista Ridge, cooking and eating!

I can’t wait to get to know your child and your family. The best way to reach me is by email: julie.mccracken@leanderisd.org. If you do not have email, you can also reach me by phone or send a note with your child. The phone number at school is 570-6000.

I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child. In that regard, I would really like to see each of you volunteer at Cox Elementary. There are many opportunities to help out at our school, such as small projects that can be completed at home, special events, Wednesday Folders, or working with a small group of students.

Together we can make this year a great one for your child!
