Hello Parents!

Thank you so much for letting me be your student's fifth grade teacher. I am very excited to begin the school year! My name is Jillyen Phelps and I will be your student's fifth grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher. 

I am originally from Chicago, IL and have been in North Carolina for four years. My husband and I went to high school together and have been married for four years. We have two amazing little boys, Chase (3 years old) and Cole (10 months old), and we have two dogs Zoey and Tinkerbelle. I attended DePaul University for my first year of college and completed my education at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. 

This is my first-year teaching ever and I am very excited to be completing my first-year at Richlands Elementary School! I have a lot of exciting ideas and plans for the year. I am very excited to meet your student and to make this year the best year yet!

I am very passionate about teaching and will be here to help you and your student with anything! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, concerns, etc. that you may have about the class or your student. You may contact me at or use the remind app. Thank you for everything you do for your child and I know this will be an outstanding year!
