Welcome to STEM at Wildwood!
My Name is Julie Niehaus Comfort (Ms.Comfort). This is my 22nd year teaching in the district, with 12 years at Wildwood.
I live in Mahtomedi with my husband Jeff, and children Tim and Stephanie. Tim is attending his final year in college, and will graduate in December. Stephanie is beginning her first year at college. My husband and I will be adjusting to being empty nesters for the first time. I am fortunate to have my other 600+ kiddos still here!
Our family loves spending time together, especially in the great outdoors! Our favorite place is at the cabin, sailing, swimming, skiing and surfing. In the winter we like to make snow sculptures, snowmobile, snowshoe, ski and snowboard.I am excited to share my love of the outdoors with you this year. Some of my other hobbies include reading, walking, cooking, hiking, listening and dancing to music and playing in the dirt.

It's going to be an exciting year full of challenges that will help our brains grow stronger! You will learn to collaborate with your classmates to complete engineering challenges. Your senses will be sharpened as we venture out to our outdoor classroom to learn about the plants and animals on our campus. Your curiosity will be tapped into amd new experiences will be around every corner.
