Bio

Thank you for stopping by my page! I am Anna Phillips, and I have the privilege of teaching 9th Grade English at PHS. I am also a proud graduate of Troy University. While at Troy, I was a member of and active in several academic organizations, Troy cheerleading, and the Trojan Ambassador Association. 

I am originally from a small town on the outskirts of Dothan but moved to Prattville in June of 2011. We have grown to truly love this city and the people of Prattville. When I'm not wearing my teacher hat, I love watching our little girl discover the world, running, reading, and spending time with family (including the canine crew)! 


Thoughts on teaching:

Writing is to speaking as reading is to listening. I believe that developing written and verbal communication skills is the core of success in daily life. Whether a student is on track to pursue a college degree, technical degree, or job in the workforce post high school graduation, he/she must be able to communicate (this includes being on the receiving end, reading and listening) effectively. I try to remind my students often that sharing their thoughts and ideas effectively is important, but what's equally important is their ability to interpret and analyze the things they read and hear. Whether it be the technical writer who tells us how to assemble a bicycle, a famous poet who reveals truths about our culture and the world around us in an artistic arrangement of words into lines and stanzas, or the student who fights through insecurities to write an award-winning personal essay....we all have something to say.
