Hey there! I'm Val Poppy, English teacher here at iForward Wisconsin. I've been a teacher since 2013 and have been teaching at iForward since 2014. I studied English and Education at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota and received my degree in 2011.
I love to travel the country with my boyfriend (you never know where I'll be teaching from!), but my favorite place is right here at home in New Richmond, Wisconsin, with my two good boys (cats), Archer and Tormund. You might even see them in a class sometime!
Some of my absolute favorite things (when I'm not teaching) are of the adventurous kind! I dabble in aerial arts (silks, lyra, etc.), hike, and re-purpose old furniture, just to name a few. But what I love the very most is working with some of Wisconsin's best and brightest students (psst...it's YOU!)
