My name is Emily Poeppe. I grew up in Emmetsburg, Iowa. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelor’s in both Elementary and Early Childhood Education. I also obtained a minor in Literacy and am endorsed in Special Education. This is my 6th year teaching preschool. I taught my first two years in the twin cities area and then moved here and joined Des Moines Public Schools. I am married and have two children ages 2 and the other 2 months. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family, taking on adventures, and being crafty. I have developed such a passion teaching Early Childhood Special Education and am excited to meet your child so that I can make a positive impact on him/her and create a joyful environment for learning.
