Mrs. Gillespie


Hello 2nd grade!

Let me tell you a little bit about myself.   This is my 22nd year teaching.  I have taught 3rd grade, Pre-K, Kindergarten and 2nd grade.  I have been at Northern Hills for 18 years, this is my 19th year here!

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 20 years to my wonderful husband, who is a football and soccer coach at Johnson High School.  We have 3 kids....Connor 17, Grant 14 and Kate 13.  They keep us busy with sports, especially in the fall, but I love it!
