Ms. Amy Gies
Greetings Chase Community! My name is Amy Gies and I have been at Chase since 2011. My career in education started by teaching Kindergarten, and since I have taught all grade levels up to fourth.
I began my higher education journey in my home state at the University of Montana, Missoula...Go Griz! I moved to Chicago and finished my undergrad at DePaul University in Elementary Education. I recieved my masters in reading at Northeastern and also have endorsments in Social Science and English as a Second Language. I have really enjoyed living big city with so much culture and possibilities, but I always look forward to visits back home and travelling near and far in general.
I strive to instill a genuine love of literature in my students and a curiositry for the world around them, as citizens locally and globally.
