Mr. Gossette's 4th Grade - Room 16
My name is Phillip Gossette, and this is my 5th year teaching fourth grade at Birney and I have loved every minute of it! I have been teaching in Redondo Beach for over 10 years, and 19 years overall. I earned by bachelor's degree in psychology at UC San Diego, with a minor in education. My bilingual multiple subject teaching certification was achieved at California State University, Los Angeles.
I have taught all grades between kindergarten to sixth grade, as well as six years of sixth grade at Adams Middle School. I also had the pleasure of teaching Chinese language classes at Earlybirds Language Academy, now known as Yak Academy.
I am the proud father of four: Yesenia, Alex, Anthony, and Phillip II. Yesenia is a graduate of Redondo Union High School and Alex is in his junior year.
I am passionate about teaching and making our classroom a "family" style environment where each student feels comfortable just being themselves.
I'm excited for the fantastic year we are going to have with my new 4th grade scholars! :)
