• Go Cowboys! My name is Tracey Phillips and this will be my 7th year at Southwest Elementary. I grew up in Lexington, NC near High Rock Lake. I moved to Tupelo, Mississippi when I was 16 years old.  I am a graduate of Mississippi State University. I moved back to North Carolina after graduation. I am married to Kelley Phillips and I have two children (Michael and Brooke). Both of my children spent their Elementary years at SWE and have moved on to SWM and SWHS. We also have two "fur" children that we adore. Both dogs are rescues and they are a part of the family. I love to watch my children participate in sports. My son plays football and my daughter is a competitive dancer. I enjoy time at home with my family and fur babies. If I get a weekend free of sports, I love spending my time at Smith Mountain Lake. I look forward to another great year at Southwest Elementary.
