Mrs. Orzolek 

Hi, my name is Julie Orzolek.  I am thrilled to be one of the second grade teachers at Franklin Avenue this year.  I have been a teacher in the Westfield Public Schools District for 26 years now, but this is my first year at Franklin Avenue School. This year marks my 29th year of teaching. I taught Special Education for ten years before becoming a fifth grade teacher.  Then, I taught fifth grade for 18 years; 16 years were at Munger Hill Elementary School and then the last 2 years I taught fifth grade at the Westfield Intermediate School.  I couldn’t be happier to be part of the Franklin Ave family this year!
I live in Westfield with my family and 2 Labrador Retrievers.  In my free time I enjoy running, biking, going for long walks with the dogs, and traveling to Florida to visit family.  

I look forward to working with my second grade students and families this year.  Please reach out to me anytime at j.orzolek@schoolsofwestfield.org
