Miss Grace Peplinski


My name is Grace Peplinski and I am so excited to be teaching second grade this year!  This is my seventh year teaching and my fifth year here at Copper Creek.

I was born in Phoenix but moved to Michigan when I was entering fifth grade.  We moved back to Arizona, where I attended Canyon Del Oro High School and have lived here in Tucson ever since.  I graduated from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!) and began teaching in the Amphitheater School District.  I taught at Walker and Coronado before coming to Copper Creek and am so glad to be part of this wonderful community.  

Defining Moment in Education

My love for teaching can be traced back to when I was in elementary school.  I always admired my teachers and the way they cared so much about each of their students. 

Core Educational Belief

I teach because I love being able to make an impact on a child's life, big or small, so that they can develop a true love of learning, become confident in themselves, and follow their dreams.
