My name is Niki Poplin. I have a BS degree in Elementary Education (k-6) from Lees-McRae College. I have a 19 year old son Dylan who plays baseball at Surry College, a 17 year old daughter Alexa who plays softball for McDowell High, 9 year old son Jackson who attends Old Fort Elm and 4 dogs. I love to read, swim, zumba, run, and hang with friends and family. I have been teaching at Old Fort Elementary School for 13 years. I taught kindergarten for 6 years, third grade for 7 years and now I am back in kindergarten! My assistant is Deza-Raye Jenkins! She has 2 beautiful daughters, Adisyn and Oaklynn and 2 dogs. She enjoys the beach, going to Biltmore Estate, playing games with her kids and spending time with friends and family!
