I have been in Phenix City Schools since kindergarten and haven't change schools yet. It's one of the best school districts I've ever been to. Now that I'm senior I also work for the Phenix City Board of Education as a co-op student and attend Central High School. I work at an elementary school in the district. I'm the second vice president of the Interact club. Where we volunteer at other schools in Phenix City and also at Feeding the Valley Food Bank. We pack food for the people in need. The food valley gives us goals to meet that we always pass. I like the organization because it gives us great community service skills that we can use in our own communities. This is the reason I love the Phenix City Board of Education.

I enjoyed working with the staff in my department and the cafeteria staff were all nice people to talk to and work with. I enjoyed working with the teacher assistant, because she was able to take my lessons plans and execute them without any assistance from me. Her teaching style was great with the students and we thoroughly enjoyed working on lessons plans and classrooms management together.
One of my favorite things about Phenix City schools is that they are always moving forward with technology. They’re always giving us students new opportunities to advance. They offer career based classes that teach you skills that will actually benefit you in the future. They invest so much into these schools. I am truly proud to be a student at a Phenix City school.
