Phillip Fabian, College Access & Success Associate
Phillip was raised and received most of his education from public schools in San Antonio, TX. Even back then, he knew that he would spend his life helping others. Originally planning on a career in medicine, Phillip pursued higher education in science while working as a tutor to help others succeed in their postsecondary academic goals.
Before coming to Commit!, Phillip worked as an educator through Teach For America in Dallas ISD at H Grady Spruce High School. He served students for two years as a freshman biology teacher, helping students each year pass the required state assessment for academic readiness in biology. However, in his second year, Phillip had the opportunity to teach an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) class, in which he helped students improve their college and career readiness and found his true passion. Phillip is excited to use his experiences in and out of the classroom to contribute to the work Commit! does for students.
Phillip graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B. S. in Biology and a focus on Neurobiology.
