Mrs. Sherri Phillips

 

My name is Sherri Phillips. I am currently a 3rd Grade Educator. I graduated from LeMoyne Owen College with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I continued my educational journey at Union University graduating with a Masterís Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and an EDís as an Educational Specialist. My purpose in teaching is to help students think. I want to instill in them the curiosity about the world around them. This fosters enthusiasm. It is this enthusiasm that will encourage students to become life-long lovers of learning. A quote that I live by is ďEducation is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world," written by Nelson Mandela.

Mr. Andrew Edwards

 

I was born and raised in the town of Pine Bluff, Arkansas. I grew up in the country – climbing trees and roaming through the woods. Once I got my taste of the city life, though, I knew it was meant for me. At 16, I was an exchange student and lived in Japan for a bit. This was one of those moments in my life that I look back on and realize that it changed the trajectory of my future. At 18, I moved to Hot Springs and attended a local college working on an Associates Degree in Graphic Design. At first, I planned to major in business, but I quickly realized that I didn’t enjoy that nearly enough to pursue a career in it. From Hot Springs, I moved here to Memphis to attend Memphis College of Art. I graduated in 2012 with my BFA. My concentration during college was photography, but I have always loved Graphic Design. My first “real-world” job was working for a small photography studio in downtown Memphis as a graphics artist. After completing my degree, I received an email from one of my professors that mentioned that Memphis City Schools was hiring Visual Art teachers. Within 2 weeks of that email, I was standing in front of my first class of students. Having little teaching experience other than summer art camp, I was immediately overwhelmed. This is my 5th year as a teacher and is my 8th school to teach at. I’ve taught at Orleans, Willow Oaks, Shannon, Egypt, Riverwood, Denver, White Station, and Dunbar Elementary. I’ve really grown to love being around kids everyday and will be continuing my career in education hopefully as a future administrator.
