Mrs. Amy Hartley
Hello! I'm Amy Hartley, 8th Grade English Language Arts and Journalism/Yearbook teacher. I come to DCMS with over 5 years of experience working in education in Houston, North Texas, and internationally. I served in the Peace Corps in El Salvador working in Youth Development. I have also worked in a variety of community development and leadership roles with the US Department of State at Embassies in the Philippines, Mexico, and Togo, West Africa.
I'm a graduate of the University of Houston with degrees in English Literature and Spanish. Outside of work, I love spending time with family, animals, practicing my Spanish, and digging into creative DIY projects.
