To build a positive working relationship in which inspires a community of 21st century learners by fostering an atmosphere of collaboration and self-directed learning with meaningful learning and leadership opportunities that engage students and staff within a global community.
You would be hard pressed not to feel motivated and like you are in a profession among “giants,” while listening to Phil share his journey as an educator. Listen in as Phil discusses a movement he has started called #FTTTP, and how it emphasizes social emotional learning at the core of teaching. He will also be presenting this movement at The 2017 Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning (MACUL) in March! Phil’s passion for connecting to his students and keeping grounded in his family will remind you what teaching is all about and how important it is to keep family first.

What happens when a group of 7th graders is tasked with making inventions that DON'T solve the problem of getting something off a tall shelf, then told to repurpose their non-working creation to solve the initial problem? Well... Take a look. Thank you, Phil Quinlan! As our Program Manager, spending Friday morning with a hundred 7th graders proved to be a fun and REALLY creative time (I got to high five a high five machine!)--I can't wait to join these amazing students again for more making. Is your school interested in working with the Makers Market of Ludington?
Arielle, Makers Market of Ludington

". . . I always thought of you as one of the classiest coaches in the entire area. That includes all boy's coaches. I watched a lot of your games along with officiating them and I always thought that your players had a lot of fun playing for you and they responded to you positively."
