Hi! My name is Hope Austin-Phillips (Ms. A-P) and I am a 7th grade science teacher at Sanford and the science department lead. This is my 13th year teaching middle school science and my eighth year at Sanford Middle School.
I grew up in Duluth, Minnesota and went to College of St. Benedict for my undergraduate studies. In 2000, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona where I did my graduate studies in education. I started teaching in Phoenix in 2003 and have been teaching since then! I loved Arizona, but I am very happy to be living in Minnesota.
I am so excited to be teaching middle school science! I feel like I have the best job ever! The best thing about teaching science is that I get to incorporate my love for science with my love for working with people.
Besides teaching, I have quite a few other interests. I love to hang out with my family which includes my sons, Felix and Sebastian, and dog, Walter. I also spend a lot of time with my parents and brother who live in Duluth! I love travel, hiking, mountain biking, running, backpacking, triathlon, and any other activity that gets me outside!
I am here to help you and to be the best teacher I can be! Please contact me if you need anything!
