Welcome to Ms. Phillips' 5th Grade ELA and Social Studies class.
Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Nicola Phillips, I am currently in my 17th year of teaching. I spent 3 years teaching in England before embarking on a childhood dream and moving to the United States. I taught in High Point for 10 years and then moved to Oak Rige Elementary School in 2015 to begin my first year as a 5th Grade teacher.
I live in Colfax with my son, Nikolas, who is also in the 5th Grade this school year. We also live with my partner, Jeremy, and his two children, Evan (11) and Ava (7).
I LOVE the Harry Potter book series and this is reflected throughout our classroom. During the first week of school students are sorted into houses in the same way the wizards and witches are at Hogwarts. I was born in England and every other year I spend my summers there. This past year my son and I were lucky enough to visit the Harry Potter studios. It was a very cool experience and you will see many pictures in the classroom from our visit.
This school year I am teaching ELA and Social Studies, while Ms. Thompson is teaching Math and Science. The schedule is attached below so you know when your child will be in class with each teacher. Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions you may have.
Stay Magical 5th Grade!
