Amy Hysick is the teacher we all wanted in High School. Amy isn't afraid to be goofy and fun in class. From the outrageous outfits, funny tees, and a collection of reptiles that hang out in her room. Amy makes the learning fun and unique every day. Amy Hysick the 2017 New York Teacher of the Year and lover of snakes, which totally gives me the heebee-jeebees - we dive into this in the beginning of the show.

She is in her 13th year at Cicero and loving every minute of it.
