Mrs. Amy Gilcrease
I was born and raised here in Huntsville, and have been married for 24 years. I am an active member of my church (Burning Hope Baptist in Trinity, TX) by singing on the Praise Team and helping out in the Soup Kitchen among other things.
About how I became a teacher at this amazing school district. I received an amazing education from the teachers at HISD, and wanted to give back to the community that provided me with an outstanding education. After working as an Instructional Assistant at Huntsville High School for 13 years, and many educator telling me that I needed to go to college to become a teacher here I am. For the first 2 years I worked at the Excel Center, and then I was asked to help out teachers at Stewart Elementary. Within 2 weeks I was moved into my own classroom and taught there for the last 6 years.
I face challenges head on and I hope to inspire students to do the same.
