About Kristine Poppe...
Team/Department: EPA Elementary
Hello! I'm Mrs. Poppe and I would like to welcome you to Elite Performance Academy! I grew up in Sheboygan, WI and moved to AZ in 1991. That’s when I began my teaching career at Loma Linda in the Creighton School District in Phoenix. I stayed there for 13 years before coming to Chandler. I spent 4 years at Humphrey teaching 4th Grade. After that, I spent 7 years at Jacobson teaching 4th & 5th grades. I started at EPA in 2015 and love it here!

My Educational Philosophy
I believe all students can learn. Education is a lifelong process, and my goal is to foster the love of learning in each student. It is my goal to create an environment where students feel safe and their opinions are valued. I would like each student to realize their full potential within the classroom and carry that into their outside world.
