Hello Parents and Students!

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! I am very excited about Senior English IV! This is my third year at Bullitt
East High School and I am loving every moment being a part of the Mt. Washington community. I am very
much looking forward to seeing your student grow over the year! I hold my B.S. in Middle and Secondary
English Education from the University of Louisville, and am currently pursuing my M.A. in Teacher Leadership,
with a specialization in English, from the University of the Cumberlands. I hold great expectations for a
successful and positive year!

The main goal for the semester is not for students to LOVE English or reading, or even writing, but instead to
understand the beauty of learning and curiosity. I believe that what we do in the classroom is vital to students
becoming lifelong learners!

Today in class, we discussed the class syllabus and course expectations. This letter is being sent home to ensure
accountability with students and partnership with parents. Required materials are on page 1 of the syllabus. In
order for students to reach their full potential, it requires effort from student, teacher, administrators and
home. Therefore, I would like to keep communication open and constant for all reasons. Please fill in the
appropriate blanks below and have your student return this page to Mrs. Phillips. The best way to reach me is
email. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns, questions, comments or suggestions that will aide
in the success of the student.
