Julie Siebers earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Greenville College and attended Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville for her teaching certification.

During her time at Belleville East High School, she helped start and co-sponsor the FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) on the East campus for the last nine years. She actively sends students to area, state, and national competitions. She also helped start and co-sponsor the National Business Honor Society on the East campus for the last six years.  She coordinates with the assistance of the FBLA Club Spring Red Cross Blood Drive and Family Food Drive. She also volunteers currently on a variety of committees such as Lancer Improvement Association (Treasurer) and Lancer Medallion Committee.

Outside of teaching, she is the accountant for the Belleville Teachers Union Local 434 since 2009. She has been a long-time member of First Christian Church of Belleville where she was the volunteer treasurer from 2006 to 2013. She also held the volunteer treasurer position for Dorchester Swim & Tennis Club from 1998 to 2011.

“I know that I say this every year, but I am so blessed to have this job!  Seven years being the facilitator and our second-year hosting two classes. Even though we started with another year of COVID issues, we still visited 27 businesses and heard from 25 speakers.  Both classes chartered their own course for their class business by holding a very successful 5K Winter Wonderland Experience and Top Golf Classic. Again, what an honor to lead, instruct, and facilitate these 27 students in discovering our local business leaders and community.  Thank you to the CEO investors, board members, mentors and my students who made my seventh year so much fun!”
