Betsy Phillips, MEd and MA
I graduated from MTSU in 2002 with my BA in English and with minors in Secondary Education and French. After three years of teaching middle school, I continued my education at MTSU and graduated in 2007 with a MEd in Administration and Supervision. Finally, I returned a third time to earn my MA in Creative Writing in 2016, this time from SNHU.
I have nineteen years of experience inside the classroom in two different systems. During those years, I taught middle school and high school level courses in various subjects, such as Language Arts/Reading; English II, III, and IV (some honors and inclusion); Dual Enrollment English 1010, 1020, 2130, and 2135; and French I. I was also the assistant band director and color guard instructor for my first four years of teaching.
I have two daughters who keep me quite busy between band, soccer, dance, and theater. Theater is huge part of our lives: You will often find us at SJCC, auditioning, rehearsing, or performing throughout the year. During my downtime, I love to bake and cook, read, complete house improvement projects, and watching movies. My girls and I also spend our breaks traveling to places we have never experienced while crossing them off of our travel bucket list and revisiting our favorite travel spots.
I am excited for year two at CCVA! We have a year under our belts and are looking forward to another wonderful year with out Nerds and their families! I look forward to serving the community through the role of coordinator and know that we will continue to experience success.
