In addition to being an Advisor, Phil teaches a wide range of classes at School One, and yet all of them somehow seem interconnected: Eastern Philosophy, Ethics, Psychology and Public Speaking. He also teaches Tai Chi and the Meditation/Stress Reduction Committee. He is devoted to chilling out the entire school.
Phil’s classes demand, from all students, full and thoughtful participation in the often lively discussions as well as meaningful introspection. His technique, at different times, has been described as “not strict but challenging” and “tough love.” Let’s just say it runs a bit of a gamut. When he’s not teaching at School One, Phil teaches Tai Chi and Kung Fu in Cranston.
