Mrs. M. Phillips
Welcome Parents and Students!

I appreciate you stopping by....

Thought I'd start off by telling you a little bit about myself.  I've been teaching at Miguel Hidalgo for almost 14 years.  I am GATE certified from Dr. Sandra Kaplan at University of Southern California and I received my M. Ed. in 2007.  I was honored with being chosen not once, but twice for the "Who's Who of America's Teachers"award!

Prior to teaching, I was a television reporter in Dallas, my hometown.  Yes, I am a die-hard Cowboys fan!!!  I also worked in England for a year...

My wonderful husband has been teaching in Holtville for almost 18 years.  We have two amazing children--a teenage son who is currently at Barbara Worth, and a 3rd grade daughter who will be joining me at Hidalgo next year!

My beliefs as a teacher are as follows:  respect, tolerance, and you never stop learning. Every child has potential, but needs their family's support.  We are a team.  I have an open-door policy, so you can come in my classroom at any time.  

I look forward to working with you and your child....Take care!
