Ms. Julie Morrin, Dean of Students
Julie has been working at ESM since 2012 and in Hartford since 1996. She began her career working alongside her mother at Kennelly School in Hartford as a paraprofessional. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree from St. Joseph’s College and a Master’s from University of Hartford she began her teaching career at Kennelly School as a fourth grade teacher where she spent two years teaching grade 4 and 3 years teaching grade 6 social studies and reading intervention .
After coming to ESM as an Operations Manager, she accepted the position of Dean of Students in 2013, where she realized just how much she could love her job!
In her free time, Julie enjoys cooking, running on a nearby bike path and spending time with her family, especially her rescue dog, Guinness.
Mrs. Doreen Clapis is a Hartford resident and lives 2 miles from the school. She has been at ESM for 5 years and loves it. She started her Family Support career when she was asked to volunteer at her son’s school, EB Kennelly, not far from here. She worked there for 16 years helping parents find services for their families. She and her husband have 3 sons and love music and being outdoors. Mrs. Clapis met her husband while they were in a wedding band together and that is why their family is very musical.
