ST. PAUL, Texas, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sherry Philips is the Owner, Director, and Instructor of Miss Sherry 's Studies and Enrichment. In her current roles, Philips is responsible for Private Instruction, Enrichment, Tutoring, Home Schooling, Distance Learning, and Special Needs Instruction. She teaches all basic subjects, ACT, SAT, GED, GRE, art, and writing.
Philips said: "Education, teaching, and my students are and have always been a large part of my life. My credentials may look impressive to some, but they are only valuable if and when that knowledge is shared in a truly caring manner with honest commitment. I continue to be indebted to all those who have shared their lives and learning with me. Students teach me, as I teach them. Their questions and different learning styles require me to look for new ways of presenting information and gaining more education in specific areas.
"My biggest challenge is helping students, and their parents, realize the value of learning. The negativity facing our children in this country is a product of stress and depression and materialism. My purpose is to build on what abilities are already in place and then expand to maximum performance. This is not on the level of making the 'A' or 'B' honor roll; instead, it is the honesty of doing one's best and giving oneself the 'A' or 'B' for effort. Encouragement to set goals is always part of the curriculum along with a number of ways to reach these goals. Lack of time management, organizational skills, and study habits are most always among the difficulties I must help the student tackle."
Prior to creating Miss Sherry's Studies and Enrichment, Philips taught for Wylie ISD where she directed the English and art departments, created that art department and curriculum, developed a crafts class for the local nursing home, taught adult education in the evenings, and created curriculum, design, and crafted decorations for a childcare center.
Philips is a member of the National Association of Female Executives, as well as the American Association of University Women. She earned an all-level teaching degree and graduated summa cum laude from East Texas A&M University.
Often recognized as a "renaissance woman," Philips is now hoping to publish and illustrate her writing. Her portfolio includes fictional history, poetry, short stories, free verse and small novels. Topics range from the paranormal and spiritual to self-realization and children's books.
