Capper now a director of La Jolla nursery school

Julie Capper has replaced Becky Candra as director of La Jolla United Methodist Church Nursery School.

Capper begins full time in August.

Capper taught at the school 10 years ago, when her daughter was a preschooler. She moved on to the San Diego Community College District where she taught parent/child preschool classes. For the last four years, Capper has been the resource specialist at Explorer Elementary, a charter school in San Diego that shares a similar philosophy of education with the La Jolla United Methodist school.

She received her undergraduate degree from Portland State University and has taken continuing education courses in childhood development from Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena and UCSD. Capper also has received three credentials in education from SDSU.
