September Teacher of the Month - Lisa Campbell

Teacher of the Month LogoWritten by Sandwich West staff

We proudly announce Lisa Campbell of Sandwich West Public School as teacher of the month. During the course of her 20 plus years in education, Lisa has exercised her excellent teaching practices to develop an enriching French Immersion experience for her students.

In addition to all her expected teaching responsibilities, year after year, Lisa has undertaken the gargantuan task of providing all of the intermediate students in our school with the opportunity to participate in a major musical production every Spring. Sandwich West has been fortunate to have had their halls and stage filled with acting, dancing and signing of productions such as The King and I, Annie, Willie Wonka and most recently, Beauty and the Beast. Beginning in July of every year, Lisa spends countless hours, listening to musical selections, reading scripts, enlisting volunteers, organizing auditions and getting ready for the upcoming musical production.

The Fall signals the beginning of the arduous task of rehearsals during lunch four times a week until the Spring when she moves to a five day a week rehearsal schedule, including additional evening rehearsals and al all day Saturday dress rehearsal culminating in a spectacular 7 performance run for 2000 area school students and parents.

The highly positive benefits to our students are simply too numerous to mention in the space allotted, but suffice it to say that this is a school community building event that our students and parents look forward to with great excitement and one that benefits our students far beyond their elementary school years.
