Meet Mrs. Amanda Phillips

Meet Mrs. Amanda Phillips:

Mrs. Amanda Phillips is our special education teacher here at Pittsburg School.  She grew up in St. Johnsbury and Waterford, VT.  She attended Green Mountain College where she enjoyed meeting new people from all over the world.

Before coming to work here in Pittsburg, Mrs. Phillips worked at Guildhall School in Guildhall, VT.  In addition to her work here at our school, she works for North Country Paddle, renting out paddle boards to interested customers.

Mrs. Phillips has worked here at Pittsburg School for 24 years now.  Her favorite thing to teach is reading because the students can make noticeable gains in a very short period of time.  Currently, she is using a program called "Fundations" to teach reading, and she finds the program fun to use. 

Mrs. Phillips wanted to become a teacher ever since she was a young girl.  She likes teaching because it allows her to see the students make improvements in areas that were previously difficult for them.  Mrs. Phillips enjoys teaching here at our school because everyone here knows everyone; it’s like a family here.

Mrs. Phillips and her husband and two sons have a cat named Lucky and two dogs; a black lab named Willow and a yellow lab named Dallas.  She enjoys cooking.  In her spare time, Mrs. Phillips watches movies, goes to sporting events, goes hunting, and spends time with her family.  She has been up to the top of Mt. Washington on a four-wheeler. She also likes to read books about animals and realistic fiction.
