Mrs. Jennifer Phillips

My name is Jennifer Phillips.  I teach second grade at Lillingtown-Shawtown.  This will be my 24th year teaching.   In 1992, I received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from East Carolina University. I also hold a North Carolina license in Reading (K-12).  In 1997, I earned my Master of Arts in Elementary Education from Fayetteville State University. I was honored to receive the Teacher of the Year Award at LSES for the 2017-2018 school year. 

My husband, Paul and I moved to Lillington in November of 2006 with our two children, Ben(18) and Ryleigh(15). My children are "graduates" of LSES. Ryleigh will be a sophomore at Harnett Central High School and Ben will be attending East Carolina University in the Fall of 2021.

This will be my second year teaching second grade.  I taought many, many years in kindergarten.  I have enjoyed my experience  and look forward to experiencing many more years in teaching second grade.  We will continue to have fun and engaging activities with the safety of your child as my first priority.
