My name is Mrs. Amy Israel. My family moved to Gilbert from Detroit, Michigan in 2018. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in Natural Science, I was working on an advanced degree in the biological sciences. I realized that I didn't want to be in the lab- I wanted to teach!

I then attended USC and graduated in 2015 with a Master's of Arts in Teaching Secondary Science.

Before coming to Higley, I taught 1st-8th grade science, as well as electives like Field Biology and Forensics at a private school in the Detroit Area. Additionally, I have been teaching gymnastics and coaching cheerleading for over 15 years! I love teaching science because science is all around us! Scientists are life-long learners, and I strive to inspire the love of learning science!
