Hello, 

A quote that I will always share with my students is from a song lyric by Jason Isbell: "However long the night, the dawn will break again." The thought conveyed by this lyric is as follows: If yesterday was bad, do everything you can to make today better.

I am entering my fifth year at Cedartown High School. This will be my seventh year teaching in the Polk School District system. I look forward to helping every student that I come into contact with at Cedartown High School. I have enjoyed the time that I have gotten to spend within the Polk School District system the past six years. The class I will be teaching this year is termed study skills. It is my goal, in this class, to keep every student on track for graduation. This class is intended to find avenues for the students to stay up to date on work in their academic course load. This class will allow for use of technology, to find the afore mentioned avenues, that could better help the student understand a concept and an assignment.

I am 42 years old and was born in Anniston, Alabama. I live in Piedmont, Alabama. I am the proud husband to Julie Patterson Kirsch and step-father to her two lovely girls being Maggie and Melanie. I married my wonderful wife, and became step-father to my two daughters, in October of 2014. I graduated from Saks High School in Anniston, Alabama, in 1993. I went to college for one year upon graduating from high school. For the next eight years I worked in the mortgage industry. In 2003 I returned to school and took full course loads for the next two and a half years and graduated with a BS Ed. degree in Physical Education and Health Education in 2005. I completed my MS Ed. degree in Physical Education within the next year. In 2008 I completed my Ed S. degree in Education. I was able to procure certification in the following through the State of Georgia:

I am a very professional oriented person. I demand respect from my students; not only for myself but any other person they come into contact with in their lives. I find it necessary to treat my students with the same amount of respect that I demand from them. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions about my class.

Thank you,
Phillip A. Kirsch
