I received my Undergraduate Degree in Elementary Education/Psychology from Russell Sage College and my Master’s Degree in Literacy from the University of Albany. I hold two certifications: Literacy B-6 and Classroom 1-6.

I started my teaching career in inner city New Jersey. While I was there I taught Kindergarten, Second Grade and Fourth Grade. In 2008 I moved back to New York. While in New York I have worked at Albany Community Charter School. I taught  Kindergarten, was the AIS Reading Teacher for grades K-5 and became AIS Coordinator for grades K-5. Last year I was a Literacy Coach for Albany City School District grades K-5.

I have a wonderful husband Patrick and eight year old daughter Lily. We live in Averill Park and my daughter attends Poestenkill Elementary School. My husband works in Rensselaer for Regeneron Pharmaceutical Company.

Outside of school I enjoy going to different state park lakes during late spring and summer, kayaking with my family, hiking with my husband and daughter, family camping trips and long bike rides. I also try making a new recipe once a week.

Steliana Philip BES 5th Grade ELA

Last year was my first year teaching and working at BES as an RTI math teacher. This year I am teaching 5th grade, specifically ELA. I am looking forward to getting to know all my wonderful students, and working with a great team of teachers. I have always been passionate about reading and writing, and I’m so so excited to explore these topics with my students. I am lucky to be a part of the BES community!
