Mrs. Gillis - First Grade

  I am excited to be starting my 17th year of teaching in the De Pere School district.  I have taught first and second grades throughout my career.  I believe that learning should be full of content, meaning & rigor yet creative and FUN at the same time.  It is so rewarding to be with the students each day and continuing to be a life-long learner myself.

  I am married to my husband Kevin, who is also a teacher and coach.  We have two beautiful children Jack and Anna.  I am blessed to bring them both to school with me each day as they are also Heritage Huskies.

  When I am not in the classroom, I love to spend time with my family (including 18 nieces and nephews.)  I also like to go out to eat with friends, watch game shows, cheer on the Packers and eat anything chocolate!
