Ms. Amy Gillespie
Hello, my name is Amy Gillespie. I am originally from Wyoming, where I grew up as and outdoorsy and sporty individual. My father was a wildlife biologist and would take me hunting, fishing and camping most weekends of my life. This is where I developed my love of science! I moved to Brenham, TX when I was 12. If you don't know about Brenham, it is where BlueBell Ice Cream is made!! There I played volleyball, basketball and soccer. After graduation, I moved to San Antonio for college and majored in Bilogy and nutrition at UTSA. I began working as a medical salse rep and went to UTSA to get my secondary science certification. I have been in education for 9 years. I began my career at John Jay High School & The Science and Engineering Academy in 2010, in the Northside Independent School District. I currently teach Aquatic Science.
I have a masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I graduated from UTSA with my Bachelors of Science in Biology and minor in nutrition/dietitian and went back to get my secondary education certification in 2008.
I am very much a science nerd!!!! Science rules!!!!
I have a small farm at home, 2 guinea pigs, fire bellied toad, 2 French bulldogs, and a 100 gallon satwater tank.
I am an avid lifter and "gym rat" as most would call me. If I am not work or in grad school you will find me at the gym on the floor hitting the weights.
I am very excited about the new year! Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Best way to get in touch with me would be though email.
