Ms. Phyllis

(Treble Clef Teacher - 4K)

What year did you start at CFK?

I started working for CFK on August 8, 2016 as the 4K teacher.

What year did you begin your early childhood profession?

I began my teaching career August 1985 and retired after 31 years in the Texas Public School System on June 3, 2016. 21 of my 31 years of teaching has been in prekindergarten or kindergarten.

Tell about your family.

I have two awesome, grown sons, one of which lives here in Madison, which is why I moved here. I also have two wonderful daughters-in-law and five beautiful grandchildren (three girls and 2 boys).

Who was/is the most influential person in your life? Why?

First and foremost, Jesus Christ, without whom my life would have no purpose. Then my parents, my mom (whom I just lost this July) for her perfectionism and organizational skills, and my dad for his strong will and work ethic.

Do you have any pets?

At this time I do not have pets. I am a cat lover, but unfortunately my current apartment complex does not allow pets. I had two cats in Texas and made sure I found them a good home before I left.

What is your hobby?

I love to teach adult Sunday school, coloring, reading and sewing. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

Share a spiritual experience in your life.

I came to know Jesus as my personal Savior when I was seven years old, however, every day I come to know Him more and more. Several years ago I had an experience that taught me to become more dependent on Christ than on humans. My faith has grown, due to this experience, because I had to depend on Him for everything. I am so grateful for every experience He has walked me through because each one means more growth and more knowledge of Him.

What is your favorite scripture?

Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
