Julia Stratmann

juliaDirector of Marketing
Communication & Programming


I love working with kids and the arts, and I’m so happy that at GSB I get to work with both! I graduated from the LMU in Munich in 2003 (M.A. in Theater, English Literature & Pedagogy). My passion for acting brought me to NYC, where I attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute. Studying acting and comedy was always part of my New York life. At GSB I started as the class teacher of grades 1 & 2. After my daughter Lumi was born in 2015, my role transitioned into supporting our English Language Learners as ELL coordinator, as well as taking on the title of Director of Marketing. In this role, I have had the pleasure of helping turn GSB from a parent initiative into an academic institution.

My teaching, as well as my role as an administrator, are informed by my deep desire to connect with people, young and old. Our job at GSB is to make kids feel good about themselves and get creative in the ways (and languages) in which this can be achieved. I love being part of a diverse team of educators and administrators, because as the school is growing, so is the team and the knowledge base we are building on.

My ever expanding responsibilities as Director of Marketing range from creating events for the community, such as the Annual Gala or the Bilingual Brain Conversations, to writing mini plays for my after school class.
