Ms. Amy Gillespie

Hello, my name is Amy Gillespie.  I am originally from Wyoming and moved to Texas when I was 12, so I am now a Texan!!!! My father was a wildlife biologist and took me hunting, fishing and camping most weekends of my life.  This is where I developed my love of science!

I went to high school in Brenham, TX (home of BlueBell Ice Cream), where I played volleyball, basketball, and soccer as well as taking a full course load (heavy on the science classes, lol). After graduation, I moved to San Antonio for college and majored in Biology and nutrition at UTSA. 

After graduating with my undergrad, I began working as an operating room representative. In 2010 I decided to go back to school to get my secondary science certification at UTSA.  I later completed my masters at UTSA in Curriculum and Instruction and am now working on my 2nd masters in Biological Sciences.  I have now been in education for 11 years, beginning my career at John Jay High School & The Science and Engineering Academy in 2010, where I taught PAP Biology. I have now been at LEE for 6 years 

I am a huge pet lover: 2 French bulldogs and a 100-gallon saltwater tank with 8 fish., an avid lifter and "gym rat" as most would call me.  If I am not work or in school, you will find me at the gym on the floor hitting the weights and I am a huge sports fan!! 

This is going to be a great year, Welcome to Earth & Space and Aquatic Science!!!! 

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Best way to get in touch with me would be though email.
