Hello! I'm Michael Popp and I teach 7th grade religion, math, science, and health, as well as 8th grade Algebra, science, and health and 5th & 6th grade health. I also serve as our Athletic Director and varsity basketball coach.
I am a product of Immanuel Lutheran School in Freeport, Illinois where I was born and raised and graduated high school. I attended Concordia College in Seward, NE where I earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in math. This is my 13th year teaching in Lutheran schools, also having taught 6th grade for two years at Immanuel in Columbus, NE and 7th grade for five years at Trinity in Davenport, IA.
My wife Jessa is also a Concordia Seward graduate. She teaches 3rd grade here at Grace and is in her 12th year teaching in Lutheran schools. We have been married for almost 13 years, and we have two boys: Peyton, (10), and Addison (8). All of our immediate family lives in the Midwest in Illinois, Minnesota, and Nebraska.
I love the ministry opportunities here to serve the Lord at Grace. If you are looking for a way to serve in the area of athletics, please come and talk to me. I also would like to invite all basketball players to join us on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 7:30 in the morning and Saturday mornings from 7:30 to 9:00a.m. If basketball isn't your thing, we play volleyball on Sunday afternoons from 3:00 to 6:00p.m.
