Liberty-Eylau Names New High School Principal
Liberty-Eylau has a new high school Principal. The LE Independent School District recently announced Dr. Roshea Phillips as its new principal of Liberty-Eylau High School.
Phillips is originally from Jackson, Mississippi but according to a press release, she moved to the Dallas area in 1996 and spent 22 years there before moving to Northeast Texas.
Phillips comes well qualified for the job as she received her undergraduate degree from Alabama State University, her master’s in School Counseling from Amberton University in Garland, Texas, and she received her doctorate degree in Curriculum Instruction and Teacher Education from Texas Tech University.
“I definitely want to develop a climate and culture where students feel safe. I want our students to know they can accomplish any of their goals here at Liberty-Eylau. We’re going to develop a system that they will be able to explore career fields, while they’re still in high school.”
Another added plus is that Phillips was a high school counselor for 10 years and also taught middle school science for eight years.
“I definitely think being trained as a school counselor has helped me to nurture kids where they are."
Congratulations to Dr. Phillips and if you see her around town be sure to give her a big welcome to the Texarkana area.
