About Jane Gillespie

Jane Gillespie is a fifth grader teacher at Herrin Elementary School in Herrin, IL. Jane is extremely passionate about her students and often refers to her career as her passion and calling. The foundation of her classroom is built on John C. Maxwell’s truth that students do not care about what she knows until they know how much she cares. Mrs. Gillespie’s students know they are part of a team and family and thrive in the trauma-informed classroom that focuses heavily on social-emotional learning.

During her sixteen years in the Herrin School District, Jane has poured her heart into her students, believing that strong, trusting relationships are the foundational key to student success. Additionally, she is a strong voice of RSI (Resiliency of Southern Illinois) and a PBIS leader in her district. Jane is also a proud graduate of Southern Illinois University Carbondale, where she earned her Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and is furthering her journey in Educational Psychology.
