This is my second year at Aledo High School and I am thrilled to be part of the Bearcat family.  This year I'll be teaching Painting, Sculpture, AP Drawing, AP 2-D Design, and AP 3-D Design in the Art 2 classroom.  

I am married to Dr. Kenneth Poppe who is an adjunct professor at Southern Nazarene University, have three adult sons:  David, Jordan, and Samuel, as well a beautiful furry daughter named Valentina.
