Welcome

I would like to take this time to welcome everyone to the 2010-2011 school year. I am very excited about the third year of iSchool High. This year we continue to refine and remix the ideas of community and synergy with even more great students.

But before I get too far in let me introduce myself. My name is Luther Phillips, and I have been a teacher for 16 years. I grew up in Mississippi and Alabama, and from a very early age felt a calling to become a teacher. For a very long time I fought against that idea, as my mother was also a teacher, and I watched her struggles with education. But I also got to watch her love for students and the raw impact that she had on students' lives. I also had more than my fair share of teachers who cared enough to feed into my own education. These included one extremely well-placed adviser who stated in no uncertain terms that I was going to become a teacher, so I needed to go ahead and sign up for those classes. Over the last few years I was becoming increasingly frustrated with the flow in public education away from addressing the student first and the curriculum second. It has been invigorating to work with other professionals who are genuinely interested, first and foremost, with the development of good people, before the development of good students.

So I am very excited to begin another new year.

As I look forward to the coming year, can I ask that you keep in mind that we are all practicing toward the best possible outcomes? Some of the things that we try may be entirely new and possibly scary. They may not work for all students. Let's try to keep the lines of communication open and clear so we can work together to maximize each students natural talents and passions.
