Office Hours: By appointment before/after school M-Th, A Lunch
My name is Mrs. Amy Israel. My family moved to Gilbert from Detroit, Michigan in 2018. I have a B.S. in Natural Science, and my M.A.T. in teaching secondary science. Before earning a masters in teaching, I was working towards an advanced degree in biology. I decided that lab work wasn't for me, and was accepted to U.S.C.'s Rossier School of Education. My certification areas are General Science as well as Biology.
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. I currently teach 7th grade honors and general science at Cooley Middle School. 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!
I coach cheerleading at Cooley, and sponsor the Spirit Club. I have been teaching gymnastics and coaching cheerleading for almost 20 years!
