I had Mr. Phillips when I was in high school 2 years ago, and he was hands down the most passionate teacher I've ever met. His eccentricities tend to put people off, but I was never too bothered by them. Even if he berates/humiliates you in class, he still cares about you underneath it all. I honestly don't think I would be where I am now if it wasn't for Phil's influence.
Students were uncomfortable asking him questions or drawing attention to themselves in fear of becoming a victim of one his tantrums. His sense of humor is a good thing when he brings laughs into classroom and while he shows favoritism, his wit is also a hurtful tool against students who he doesn't like whom he is especially harsh with and WILL find even the tiniest thing to pick on until the semester is over. When feeling friendly, he is generous in the amount of cryptic help he will provide.
When i was in his commercial design class,i thought he is very tough and mean teacher;however, my conception changed after i took his AP art class. He is VERY helpful and cares about every students
AP Art...oh my goodness. Fun but stressful. Mr. Phillips made it awesome and I learned so much!!!
Mr. Phillips is a great person...his tests not as great but he makes the class fun and enjoyable...never a stressfull class
