Meet Mrs. Poelker

  • Hello, and welcome to our class! My name is Mrs. Poelker, and I can't wait to meet you! This is my fourth year teaching at Strausser Elementary. I hope you’re as excited as I am! Let’s make this year a year to remember!

    My family and I moved to Jackson Township in July, 2015. My husband Trent and I have three children. Our daughter Reese is 9, Blake is 7, and our son Jackson is 15. I began my teaching career in southern Illinois where I worked as an aide and substitute teacher. I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology from SIUE, and I also earned my master's degree in Elementary Education from McKendree University in 2012.
