Mrs. Julie Opdycke

Hello! I am so excited about being the assistant principal at Wellborn Elementary School! 

I am originally from Cherokee County, AL but currently live in Southside, AL. I am married to Chad Opdycke and have 4 wonderful bonus kids. I love spending time with my family, being outside, and traveling. I graduated from Jacksonville State University with my bachelors degree in 2014 and with my graduate degree in Instructional Leadership in 2022. I began my teaching career at Saks Elementary School, where I was a Pre-K teacher, 1st grade teacher, and reading specialist. I also served as an Instructional Partner at Alexandria High School. 

I am very passionate about my career. I have a servant leadership style. I believe I am here to serve and do what I can to make Wellborn Elementary School and the community the best that it can be. I am looking forward to an amazing year! Please do not hesitate to reach out and let me know if there is anything I can do for you!
