The Teacher Spotlight is a weekly piece where we feature our leaders at Melissa Schools. Check back each Monday to meet a new teacher!
This week’s Teacher Spotlight shines on April Phillips from Melissa High School, nominated by Principal Mike Carter. Ms. Phillips teaches various levels of English I through IV, and this is her seventh year in Melissa.
Learn more about Mrs. Phillips below.
The summer of 1998 I taught English in Mozambique. I had always worked with children through the YMCA but the mission trip focused my attention on being able to give back in a more direct way … so here I am with 14 years in public school.
I have several favorites including; “Romeo and Juliet”, poetry, and Edgar Allen Poe. However, my favorite lessons are the lessons students teach me about themselves with their favorite books.
Hope pushes us on in hard times
It lights the darkest paths
& provides the possibility for miracles
Hope is what makes dreams come true
The Cardinal Way! We are a family focused on growing your future.
