Mr. Phil Sheridan
Hello, my name is Phil Sheridan. I teach 7th and 8th Grade Reading Intervention here at Battle Creek Middle School. I am also teaching the Dare 2 B Real foundations class with Ms. Mayamba.
I grew up and graduated from high school in East Grand Forks, Minnesota where I played basketball, tennis and ran cross country and track. I graduated in 1993 and went to Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. After graduating in 1997, I spent two years in Brazil, teaching 3rd grade at the American School of Belo Horizonte, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
I returned to the United States two years later and taught 4th grade at a small school in St. Paul. During this time, I got my masters degree and K-12 reading license from the University of Minnesota. I have been enjoying teaching middle school reading for St. Paul Public Schools ever since. I really like running, listening to live music, hanging out with my friends, and, of course, reading!
I have run 18 marathons.
I once caught and ate a pirahna in the Amazon Rain Forest in Brazil.
I have a twin brother who is a teacher too.
I got married July 16th 2011.
I have an 13-year-old son named Leander and a 4-year-old named Edrick.
