Yakima Teacher Honored

Yakima Adventist Christian School (YACS) is proud to announce that Phillip C. Engelman, ninth- and tenth-grade teacher, has been named as one of our nation’s most influential educators and has been included in the publication Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers 2002. Engelman began his teaching career in 1980. Over the past 22 years he has taught in Northern California, Rocky Mountain, Washington, and Upper Columbia conferences and at every grade level except kindergarten. This is Engelman’s second year teaching ninth- and tenth-grade at YACS.

Engelman’s favorite hobbies are backpacking and snow skiing, which he integrates into the classroom schedule. This year he is again sponsoring six weekly ski outings at White Pass. Engelman and his wife Kathy have three grown children and make their home in Yakima.
