Woodbury Junior-Senior High School Teachers of the Year - 2018

Sara Campbell
Junior High School

Technology is advancing at an ever more rapid pace.  New devices and the apps that make them come alive are constantly changing. Teachers in the Woodbury City School District are kept afloat in this sea of transformation by our Academic Coach for Technology, Mrs. Sara Campbell. @TechieCampbell – as her Twitter handle alludes – is the point person for navigating what works, what doesn’t, and what ideas/approaches are truly worth pursuing.

Over the past few years, Mrs. Campbell has helped usher in our district’s 1-to-1 Chromebook initiative, inspired numerous teachers to dive into the Twitter universe, facilitated countless hours of professional development, and helped our schools become certified in Digital Citizenship. She is also at the forefront of helping our district to become Future Ready. Always accommodating, Mrs. Campbell meets people where they are – novice, expert, or somewhere in between – and helps guide them toward deeper integration of technology in their daily teaching practices. Kind, considerate, upbeat and knowledgeable are all words that aptly reflect this amazing educator.

While Mrs. Campbell was recognized as the Junior High School Teacher of the Year for 2017-18, this award is certainly also a reflection of her positive district-wide work.

Sara Campbell is a tremendous asset to Woodbury. Congratulations on a well-deserved honor!

Amanda Ford
Senior High School

The 2017-18 High School Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Amanda Ford, has been described by colleagues as encouraging, supportive, dedicated, helpful, consistently positive, and uplifting. What an inspiring list of qualities that her peers have noticed! Adults who work with Mrs. Ford enjoy the experience tremendously because the smile they are greeted with and the friendly feeling they leave with lights up their day!

Mrs. Ford’s emphasis on relationship building also extends into her classroom with students.  She teaches 9th and 10th grade English to an eclectic group of young people.  Super organized, Mrs. Ford places a great deal of emphasis on delivering engaging, thought-provoking lessons dependably day in and day out. She is eager to try any new initiative, not for the novelty of keeping things fresh, but for the sheer love of learning and being better positioned to help her students. Mrs. Ford also serves as a class advisor and the Yearbook Club advisor helping students in a myriad of ways outside of the classroom.

Congratulations to Amanda Ford!
