Mrs. Mary Philyaw

Hi. My name is Mary Philyaw. I am a 7th Grade ELA Teacher at Brewton Middle School. I am entering my twenty-third year of teaching. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from (AUM) Auburn University Montgomery and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from (ASU) Alabama State University. I received Middle School Certification in 2017. I am an A+ College Ready Trainer. I must say, I am proud to be a TRM Tiger!


My teaching career began at Evergreen Elementary School in Conecuh County. I have taught first and second grade as well as served as the ARI Reading Coach for EES. This is my fifth year in middle school and I love the transition. It’s a blessing to see the beginners blossom into readers and even more gratifying to see those blossoms in full bloom as great readers.


I am the mother of two amazing daughters, Jasmine and Jordan Philyaw. Jasmine is a two -time TROY graduate and Jordan is a junior at AUM. I enjoy spending time with my girls, family, friends, reading, and DIY projects.

“It’s Always a Great Day to Be a Tiger!”
