JULIE BRANYON

Executive Director

I was born in Greenville and raised in the Pelzer-Williamston area. I am a graduate of Anderson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and graduate of Furman University with a Master of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. I taught for 15 years in Early Childhood Education programs in Greenville and Anderson and served as an Early Interventionist for children with developmental delays and special needs for 5 years before becoming the Director at Earle Street Academy. I have also written and taught continuing education classes for area preschool programs. I am passionate about early childhood education. I am very excited about the opportunity to lead and work with ESA. I am also looking forward to getting to know all of the children, families, and staff of ESA.
