Mrs. Gillespie


Hello 2nd grade!

Let me tell you a little bit about myself.   This is my 25th year of teaching.  I have taught 3rd grade, Pre-K, Kindergarten and 2nd grade.  I have been at Northern Hills for 22 years and so, I can say this is a great place to be!

I am a graduate of Southwest Texas State University, now known as Texas State University, with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a specialization in early childhood education.  I am proud to say I am a product of NEISD, as I graduated from MacArthur High School.

On a personal note, I have been married for 23 years to my wonderful husband, who is a high school football and soccer coach.  We have 3 kids....Connor, Grant and Kate.  Connor plays college football.  Grant is our high school football player and Kate plays club and high school soccer.

They keep us busy with sports, especially in the fall, but I love it!
