ThriveinEDU with guest Dr. Jerod Phillips

I had a great conversation with my friend, Dr. Jerod Phillips. Dr. Jerod Phillips Sr. is the Principal of David E. Robinson Elementary School (DRE) in Magnolia, DE. He arrived at DRE in February 2023 with a zeal to engage the school community with the vision of being great for kids in all aspects of the school. Prior to arriving at DRE, Dr. Phillips was a Principal and Assistant Principal at the elementary level in Middletown, DE. He has 9 years of school leadership experience. He is passionate about developing positive public relations between the district, school, students, parents, and the overall community. As a result of Dr. Phillips’ journey from teacher to Principal, while being connected, he believes that being a connected educator can help take one’s career to unprecedented heights. Dr. Phillips was the Delaware National Outstanding Assistant Principal of the Year for 2021. Dr. Phillips has had one publication in NAESP’s Principal Magazine: “Being a Bias-Conscious Leader.” Principal, May/June 2022: Rewriting the Role, Volume 101, Issue 5, in addition to being a contributor to several monthly sections of the APs Rising section of the same publication. Dr. Phillips is a podcaster in the education sector, starting with three co-hosts of the podcast, Speaking Educationally in January 2020. Since then, he has recently launched his solo podcast, The Squad Builder Podcast.
