Meet Mr. Ken Phillips, an 8th Grade Social Studies Teacher at Canal Winchester Middle School. He has dedicated 22 years to Canal Winchester Schools and has worked in education for 31 years!
"I love the sense of community and desire to help empower all students for success," says Mr. Phillips, who also shares that he enjoys seeing the moment of realization when a student realizes they've mastered a new concept.
Outside of school, Ken is the lead vocalist in a 70s and 80s classic rock cover band called Reelin' in the Years.
Mr. Phillips earned a Bachelor of Science in Education from Ohio University and a Masters in Education and Applied Professions from the University of Dayton. You may also know him as the coordinator of the 8th Grade Washington D.C. Trip, a former 8th-grade boys basketball coach of 16 years, or as our current 7th and 8th-grade boys track and field coach, a position he has also held for 16 years.
Thank you, Mr. Phillips, for your dedication to CW Schools and everything you do for our students and our schools!
