Julie Ortega is the home-room teacher of The Chipmunks at West Eastman High School in the second CGI/live-action film Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. She has a friendly tone about her as she constantly smiles and talks calmly. After The Chipettes begin attending the school, she gives advice to them and The Chipmunks when it is needed. She also convinces Eleanor to talk to Theodore when he is distressed about missing Dave, and about Alvin and Simon's quarrel. Julie was the crush of Toby Seville during his high school days and once they bumped into each other they worked somewhat awkwardly to get back together.
