Emily Phillips » Welcome!



Hello!  My name is Emily Phillips, and I am so excited begin my second year of teaching here at Maxwell Elementary!  I cannot wait to get to know you and start our new school year.  Outside of school, I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends.  I come from a family of educators and I truly have a passion for helping students grow as learners.  


I grew up in the small town of Wadley, Georgia where I attended Thomas Jefferson Academy for Kindergarten through 12th grade. I then graduated high school in May of 2013.


In May of 2017, I graduated from Georgia Southern University with my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education.  I am so excited and looking forward to finally being able to fulfill my passion as a teacher!


I am looking forward to a great year in 1st Grade! We are going to have so much fun!
