Hello, I am Trina Phillips, and I am thrilled to be your child's third grade teacher this year!
I am originally from Gadsden, have lived in Rome, Georgia, and now reside in St. Clair County.
I am married to Zach, and we have two children together. Bryant is eight years old, and Chloe is eleven years
old. I graduated from Jacksonville State University in 2000 with Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.
I taught second grade for two years in the Rome City School System in Rome, Georgia. Then, after my
husband and I were married, we moved to Vestavia, and I was a substitute teacher in the Hoover City
School System. In 2003, I began teaching at Moody Elementary and taught for four years until I had my
daughter Chloe. Then, I decided to take some time off to spend with my children. During this time, I
completed my Master's Degree in Elementary Education at Jacksonville State University. My husband
and I also helped with a new church plant in Moody called The Gathering Place. I went back to work
at Moody Elementary in 2012. This will be my seventh year in third grade and thirteenth year of teaching.
We are going to have so much fun this year, and I am so excited to have the priviledge of teaching
