Mrs. Alison Du Bose Phillips

Welcome Mustangs! Im am so excited to join Pine Valley Middle School for the 2021-22 school year, and I can't wait to meet all my students.  Whether you join on the first day, middle of the year or end of the year, our journey together through 7th grade English Language Arts will be an unforgettable one. I want you to know I have worked hard to become your teacher because I believe education is so important for your journey into adulthood.  In our classroom you can expect to find a culture of inclusion, leadership, empowerment, ownership, and of course, lots of fun! We will be doing life together, and together we are truly better. 

This year I have the pleasure of joining the amazing coaching staff and will be coaching Cross-Country in the Fall semester, as well as Track in the Spring semester. If you are interested in joining the Cross-Country team, listen for more info during your P.E./Athletics period. 

On a personal note, I have been married for 17 years, and we have two boys, ages 16 and 14, and one girl, age 11. So parents, I am right here with you in this journey of middle school to high-school! You are never alone!  In my free time I love watching my boys play football, and my daughter play piano. I enjoy hanging out with my sisters and parents, and watching my many many nieces and nephews.

Please note my email: 

Teaching is an honor, and I thank you for trusting me with your students. This is is going to be a great year, Mustangs! Let's saddle up for the best year yet!  ~Coach Phillips
