Vanessa Phillips

Global Teacher

Hi! My name is Vanessa Phillips, and I was born and still live in Miami, Florida. My husband and I have two kids, Mia and Ricky, both high school students, and we have two lovable dogs, Peanut Butter and Jelly. I graduated from Florida International University in 2005, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. I have been an educator since 2009, and since then I have enjoyed making valuable connections with my students and helping them become lifelong learners.


Outside of teaching, I love spending time with my family, being outdoors, traveling, exercising, and watching sports. My family is big on American football! I also enjoy learning new things, trying new restaurants, and exercising the brain with word puzzles.
