About Me:

Hello.  My name is Roxanne Gillespie. 

I am so excited to be working with your little artists this year!  This is my 20th year working for Gilbert Public Schools and my 6th year at Meridian Elementary.  I am a proud native of this great state of Arizona.  I have lived here all my life.  I attended ASU and received my bachelors in Art Education there.

I have always loved art.  It has been a big part of my life.  I believe art can teach us so much about ourselves and the beautiful world we live in.  I have been married for 20 years and my husband is an Artist as well.  We have 3 beautiful children that are growing up too fast. I love teaching art!  Your children remind me every day why teaching is so worthwhile!
