Dr. Pamela Phillips

Welcome to my science home page!  I have been teaching science for the past twenty-six years.  I have taught physical science, earth/environmental science, chemistry, biology and anatomy and physiology.  I am looking forward to this new venture in my career.  I began teaching in 1989 at Ayden-Grifton High School with a masters in Science Education from ECU.  I taught science for one year and then moved to Georgia with my family and taught at Hinesville High School in Hinesville, Georgia for two years.  Once my daughter was born, I was blessed to stay at home with her for two years.  Once I went back into the classroom I began my true calling by teaching at an alternative school in Jessup, Georgia.  I was at that school for one year and then moved back to Smithfield, North Carolina in 1995.  Once back in Smithfield, I taught math for one year at South Campus and then the following six years taught science.  I left my classroom and earned a masters in school administration from NCSU and worked as an assistant principal for two years.  I realized that teaching was my passion and moved back to the classroom.  I taught three years at Midway High School where I met my future husband.  The science position became available at South Campus and I was able to go home!  In 2015 I earned my doctorate (Ph.D.) in Science Education.  In 2016, my husband of six years succombed to cancer and passed away.  My school family at South Campus helped me navigate this new season of my life.  A long time ago I actually graduated from Smithfield Senior High School in 1976.  I am an active member of Smithfield Selma High School.  I hope that you will be as well.  

I have been teaching at SSS now for four years and have enjoyed my time getting to know the AVID and IB students.  I look forward to being at SSS for many years to come.

Once a Spartan, always a Spartan!!!
