Julie Albee

Professor of Education;
Director of Assessment

Julie Jackson Albee began teaching at HLGU in the fall of 2003 when God moved her family to Hannibal. “I have a passion for the Lord and for teaching and preparing future teachers for tomorrow’s classrooms. It is so exciting to see God work in the lives of our students through answered prayers, and to watch them develop into effective classroom teachers! Christian teachers have the added privilege of seeking God’s insight and wisdom into the specific needs of their students.”

Dr. Albee is married to Mark, pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church. They have three grown children: Tim, who is in corporate sales in Fairfax, VA; and Christina (son-in-law Jordan) Argo, who is a licensed professional clinical counselor in Arkadelphia, AR: and Ben, who is a computer network administrator in Columbia, MO. Dr. Albee enjoys serving the Lord as a co-teacher in the University Students’ Bible Study, AWANAS grade level leader, VBS teacher, and ladies’ ministry coordinator at Immanuel Baptist.
