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.

We will be using the Learning Management System called Canvas, exclusively once we begin the semester.

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 Monday, August 17.
