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.
