• Hello! My name is Mrs. Kopke. This is my third year teaching at Peralta Trail Elementary School. I am very excited to move back up to 3rd grade. I have been married for almost 10 years. My husband and I have two amazing boys, ages 5 and 8. I also have two dogs and two tarantulas at home. I have lived in Arizona most of my life. I was the first Rookie of the Year for AJUSD for the 2018/2019 school, which was a great honor, as I was nominated by my fellow teachers. 

    I love Pepsi, coffee, cactus, and most importantly my family. When I am not teaching I enjoy going to the park with my kids, swimming, watching movies, and binge watching my favorite old shows. 

    My favorite thing about being a teacher is making connections with my students. I love to listen to their stories, being about to share in the excitement, and watching them grow academically. Welcome to 3rd grade- We are a sharp group.

     Mrs. Kopke
