Ms. Carolyn Phillips
Class of 2026
Hello! My name is Carolyn Phillips and I have been working with children since I was 16 years old. I began my career with children as a before school and after school "counselor" for a YMCA program. Over the next few years I worked full time for their summer program and their school year program. I became a director over my after school site.
I completed my degree in Literature and Writing from San Diego State University San Marcos. The military moved my family to Cherry Point and we decided to stay!
I began subbing for the school system and was encouraged to apply for an assistant's position at GAB. For a year and a half I worked as an assistant and when a teaching position opened I applied for it and added an elementary education degree to my BA. I have taught first grade, fifth grade, and second grade.
I love watching students opening up and discovering new things. I am very excited to have you and your student as a part of my class this year.
