Ms. Sandy Campbell
Who am I?
I am a high school science teacher with a love of math. I graduated high school class in Jonesboro, Georgia. I went on to the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, Georgia, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. I worked at the Marcus Autism Center in Atlanta doing clinical behavior therapy for a few years before moving to Arizona to attend Arizona State University to get my Master of Education in Secondary Education. I taught for a few years in Mesa Public Schools where I became IB trained and taught a few different science subjects (biology, physical science, and chemistry). In order to be closer to my family, I decided to move to Alaska where I am now a part of Palmer High School. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, sewing, and gardening, and am an avid sci-fi and fantasy fan.
What do I teach?
At PHS, I am the IEA (Indian Education Act) and Migrant Education math and science teacher. My classes are provided for students who qualify for the IEA/Migrant Program. In these classes, you will find a small student to teacher ratio (no more than 15:1) so that each student can receive support on difficult subjects, like math and science. I also teach multiple Academic Strategies classes, which provides students time to complete schoolwork and get help when they are struggling from me or from our in class tutor, Ken Cunningham. If you are interested in joining my classes, please see your counselor to find out how to qualify.
My current courses are: Algebra 1, Intro to Algebra (Inside Algebra), Biology, and Academic Strategies. The classes can change from year to year and even from semester to semester. If there is a need and/or an interest in other subjects, please let me or your counselor know. We will share this information with the Federal Programs staff and try to accommodate where we can.
