Hi, I'm Mrs. Amy Schilling. I am a native of Aberdeen, South Dakota and have lived in Arizona since 1996. I received my B.S. with a major in psychology from Northern State University, Aberdeen, SD and my M.A. in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix, Phoenix, AZ. I am an Arizona Highly Qualified Teacher, with an emphasis on English. I have taught at JMPS since the school opened in August of 2000. This is my seventeenth school year teaching English 9 and my fourteenth year teaching Humanities. Additionally, I teach senior literature and two senior electives: Psychology, and Alternative Nutritional Perspectives. I am also the Fine Arts Director and the Director of the Orchestra, Ukulele Group, and the Madison Prep Rock Band (which I co-direct with Mr. David Batchelder).
Prior to teaching at JMPS, I worked in human resources for various corporations and non-profit organizations. I have been married since 1995 and have two sons (the eldest born in 2005 and the second in 2007). In my spare time I enjoy playing guitar, listening to music, reading, playing classic Nintendo video games with my sons, and spending time with my family and friends. I feel very fortunate to be part of the JMPS family. I firmly believe in the mission of the school, and I am grateful to work with such a wonderful staff and student body.
