Hello My Name Is...
Choral and General Music Teacher
MR. PHILLIPS'S WEEBLY SITE!
My name is Mr. Phillips, and I have been in education for 10 years. Before becoming a public school teacher, I worked as a private voice and piano instructor at Summit Studios and also taught privately. I also ran a youth choir at St. Paul’s in Glastonbury and music directed for East Granby Summer Theatre. After concluding my Music Education program through the University of Connecticut, I began my career in Willington, and have remained here for the past nine years. I recently finished my Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership with a 4.0 GPA from Lincoln Christian University. I am grateful to be here and learn from your children.
In my spare time I perform around the state as a community theatre performer in Windham, Colchester, Suffield, and other places. I also music direct for Ellington High Schools musicals and have music directed at Chestnut Street Playhouse in Norwich. I accompany around the state either for shows or local churches.
As an educator, these are some of my core beliefs:
- I believe that all students can achieve if they believe in themselves.
- I believe that learning is a dual process for teachers and students where teachers are constantly learning.
I take my job as an educator very seriously and I spend every day trying to be better. I know that teaching is a learning process, and I believe that if I ever felt that I could not do anymore to improve, then it is time for me to retire or find a new career.
