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 10 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 Bachelors of Science in Biology while minoring in Nutrition and I have a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I am currently working on my PhD in Educational Leadership! 
I am very much a science nerd!!!! Science rules!!!!

I have a pet lover, I hve a guinea pigs, 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.
