Hello!  My name is Emily Phillips, and this is my third year of teaching here at Maxwell Elementary!  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 have always had a passion for learning and am blessed to have the opportunity to continue to learn with my sweet students!
