Multiple Subject Credential MAE | Virtual Campus

Hometown: Culver City, CA

My name is Catherine Phillips. After a 15-year career in Commercial Real Estate in San Francisco and being a mom of two, (6 and 10) I decided to return to school to get my Masters and MultiSubject Teaching Credential. My passion is literacy and authentic learning. I teach clinics for sailboat racing and my hobbies include reading, knitting and camping with my family.

Fun Fact: Sailboat Racing - Skipper of Ono, a J29, Girl Scout Troop 2015 Leader.

Research Interests: Equity, Homework, Co-teaching Efficacy, Inclusive Classroom Effect on Acheivement Gaps

Favorite part of the program: I love the weekly discussion forums and RISE feedback. I have learned so much from other students through these discussions.

Practicum/Internship site: El Rincon Elementary School, Culver City, Unified School District

Advice to first year students: Download the App for Canvas. Do the reading on Monday and Tuesday and the rest of your week will flow more easily.
