Ms. Karen Phillips

     My name is Karen Phillips, and I teach first grade at Clarkston Elementary. I graduated from The University of Texas at Tyler with my teaching degree in Early Childhood Education through eighth grade.  I also have ESL certification.  I went to Clarkston Elementary as a child, my own children attended Clarkston Elementary, and  I have been blesssed to teach at Clarkston for 17 years. 

      I believe in teaching each child the way they learn best! I believe in parent/teacher communication, and I am excited to meet and talk with each parent throughout the year so that we can work as a team to meet the needs of your child.

      Please visit our class page each week to view our schedule and classroom announcements. 

      I look forward to teaching your child this year!
