CKSD Educator Robin Campbell Honored

This past week’s Silverdale Chamber of Commerce President’s Luncheon was yet another huge success. Even amidst the current economic challenges, local area businesses are finding great value in joining the Chamber and attending its various functions.

Perhaps one of the most valuable aspects of the Chamber’s activities is recognizing and honored local educators within the Central Kitsap School District and bestowing their ‘Excellence in Education’ awards. Such was the case this past Wednesday.

Longtime Central Kitsap School District Educator, Robin Campbell, was the honored recipient this month.

With over 30 years of service to CKSD, Robin Campbell has functioned in a number of capacities, including: elementary teacher, learning specialist, district testing coordinator, high school math teacher, online teacher, athletic director and baseball coach.

Currently, Robin serves as coordinator of the Eastside Alternative High School Program, where he demonstrates tremendous energy and innovation in the classroom, infusing his students with tremendous motivation and instilling in them a desire for the joys of learning.

“Robin aids without reprimand, corrects without disparagement, and teaches by example,” said Richard Arena, alternative programs principal. “He is excellent in accessing student needs and implementing effective approaches to lessons. In fact, I have often suggested that teachers new to the profession, as well as tenured faculty members, observe his ability to connect students to learning. Overall, Robin is a leader, an inspiring teacher, a motivating colleague, and an extraordinary asset to our district.”

Robin received a heartfelt standing ovation by the Chamber members in attendance.

Central Kitsap School District is proud of its long-standing reputation for extraordinary staff and is pleased to congratulate Robin Campbell for this much-deserved award.
