Hi! I’m Val Poppy, English Teacher at iForward Wisconsin. I also help manage “The iForward Journal,” our school’s completely online, student led newspaper. This is my third year teaching at iForward Wisconsin and my 4th year teaching English. I graduated from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2011 with a degree in English and a minor in Education. My favorite thing about working at iForward (apart from the commute) is the amazingly bright, talented and overall wonderful students in my classrooms.
Currently, I live in sunny(ish) New Richmond, Wisconsin. I love to bake and get crafty, travel, play with my two-year-old boxer dog named Ollie, occasionally binge-watch shows on Netflix (right now The West Wing is my favorite!) and root for the Minnesota Vikings (sorry!)
