Mrs. April Phillips
I am excited to begin the new school year with my students and being a part of Knight Nation! I have spent my professional life teaching the introductory writing and reading courses in college but have always wanted to return to the secondary level to teach high school. Following my family's return from Ramstein, Germany, I began the Post-Baccalaureate Teaching Certification Program at Texas Lutheran University. As part of its rigorous program, I observed classes and then student taught at Steele, teaching seniors. I had a great experience and feel fortunate to work with such a fantastic staff and to impact the lives our our students. I am certified to teach English Language Arts & Reading 7-12 and ESL.
I hope my passion for learning inspires my students to develop their individual talents and to become lifelong learners.
Fall 2021 tutoring is scheduled below.
In-person tutoring for the Fall semester:
Tuesdays and Wednesdays: 8:15 am -8:40 am; 4:00pm-4:30pm
Other times by appt.
We will be using the Learning Management System called Canvas, exclusively once we begin the semester. Please make sure that you have your correct Banner ID and password from Northeast Lakeview College. The second week of school, I will demonstrate how to access the English 1301 course that includes the syllabus, gradebook, quizzes, readings, and modules. Please get that ID and password before school begins.
Students use various applications to work and turn in work in this class. Please download and access different applications in class the first week of school.
As the district transitions from Remind, please use email to communicate with me. As your student is enrolled in an advanced course, we expect that they will have access to Ascender and be an advocate for their own progress and success in the course. Please encourage them to reach out to me regarding any issue or concerns first.
