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!
