Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. John Phillips, Special Education
Hello, I’m John Phillips and this is my first year teaching at Fairhope Middle School. I began my teaching career after graduating from the University of Alabama in Birmingham where I majored in History. I’ve taught for seven years in Florida before getting my certification for Alabama. I’ve taught high school history (both US and World) along with middle school subject areas ranging from Math, Geography, History, Science, and PE. My certification includes Elementary Education K-6, Social Science 6-12, Generalist 4-8, PE K-12, and Special Education K-12.
My interests include college football (Roll Tide!), traveling, reading, and beach Frisbee. My girlfriend Jeanna and I have two Shih Tzu dogs (Gizmo and Grady) who live a charmed life. We have a great time as well! Though I live in the Perdido Key area it is indeed a pleasure to be a part of the Fairhope community.
