FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) - This week's Tools for Teachers recognition and 319 dollars award goes to Robin Phillips, a 7th grade math teacher and coach at Wilson school. Mr. Phillips was nominated by Madison, a former student who wanted to express her appreciation for Mr. Phillips' patience and ability to make math comprehensible.
Mr. Phillips says the learning success starts with a positive classroom environment.
"They are always eager to learn if you can just get on the same page, so that is what we try to do...make it fun. And, I enjoy what I do, so I expect them to enjoy it too. Whatever we can to make it a pleasant atmosphere," Phillips tells us.
If you know a worthy teacher, coach, principal, or aide, tell us about them through the Tools for Teachers nomination form.
