1st grade - Mrs. Judy Roepe - Email: [email protected]

I was born in Rockdale, TX. My family moved to Sweet Springs, Missouri when I was four years old. I attended Holy Cross Lutheran School and St. Paul Lutheran High School.

After high school I attend Concordia Lutheran College in Austin, TX. I graduated in 1990 with a BA in Elementary Education, specializing in speech communications and reading.

My first call was to Pilgrim Lutheran School in Houston, TX where I taught 3rd grade for two years. During my second year I became engaged to Brad Roepe.

Brad was serving in the US Navy, stationed in San Diego, California. After our wedding in Missouri, we moved to California. I taught Preschool at St. Luke's Lutheran Preschool in La Mesa, CA. for two years.

Brad was relocated to Bremerton, Washington in 1994. In the fall I began teaching 2nd and 3rd grades at Peace Lutheran School in Bremerton. Brad left the military in 1995, after our first child was born, and we returned to Missouri.

I taught English, Reading, and Religion in grades 5-8 at Trinity, Lutheran School in Alma, MO. for one year. Then I received a call to Holy Cross in Emma, MO. teaching preschool and kindergarten.

When our second child, Meghann was born, I decided to stay home for 2 years. During that time our third child, Luke, was born.

I received a call to St. Paul's Lutheran School to teach 1st grade. I have taught at St. Paul's for 11 years. During my 6th year of teaching at St. Paul' s our 4th child Samuel was born.

I currently live in Emma, Missouri with my husband Brad and children Meghann 14 yrs., Luke 12 yrs., and Samuel 5 yrs. Isaiah 18 yrs, our oldest son, is a freshman at Baylor University in Waco, TX.
