Mr. Phillip R. Batten
I teach in the Social Studies Department at South Caldwell High School. The courses I teach include: American History I (Honors and Regular) and Crime and Justice.
I have been teaching since 2001 starting at Lexington Senior High School where I taught for three (3) years. From there I moved to Catawba County and taught at Bandys High School in Sherrills Ford for two (2) years. I have been at South Caldwell since then. I enjoy being a Spartan and the fellowship I have with my colleagues.
I studied at UNCC where I received a BA Degree in History and a BA Degree in Political Science. I received my Juris Doctor from Wake Forest University School of Law.
I love spending time with my family. I coach their soccer teams and serve as Scoutmaster for the Scout Troop in my area.
