I received my B.A. in Education from the University of Mississippi.

For all the Bulldog fans, don't fret---My daughter and son both graduated from Mississippi State!


Hello, I am Laurie Poppenheimer. I have been teaching fifth grade for over 20 years. My educational career began at the University of Mississippi where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree. I taught for 9 years in Shelby County before coming to DeSoto County.   My husband Glen and I have been married for 37 years. Our two children, Christen and Neal, are married and live in the Hernando area.  We now have one teen granddaughter,  3 grandsons under the age of 4, and a newborn girl.  Life is ever-changing!
