Ms. Lilly


  My name is Dalila (Dee) Lilly and I am a science teacher and Instructional Coach here at Mary E. Phillips HS. Although this is only my sixth year at Phillips, I have been teaching science for the past 17 years. I am originally from NY but I headed south after high school to attend college. I am still a New Yorker at heart- especially when it comes to the Knicks and the Yankees:) - but I have grown to love NC. ---
     I believe it is important to be involved in my school community because I truly care about my students and want them to be well-rounded. Throughout my career I have served as a step team coach, tennis coach, cheerleading coach and student government adviser. Currently, I am one of the advisors for the senior class.
          I am a firm believer that all students can be successful so I work hard to teach the content in a variety of ways. In class we take notes, do lots of labs/hands-on activities, online activities, review games and projects so that students can achieve. We work hard in class, but I try to make sure that we have some fun thrown in the mix to keep students engaged. I also utilize Kagan strategies which allow students to work cooperatively and to develop important social skills that will help them be successful in the future. Please work with me to encourage your child to "hang in there" this school year and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
