Alaska - Paul Campbell

Paul Campbell (AK '15) | First- and second-grade teacher, Chester Valley Elementary | Anchorage, AK

Date of Award: November 22, 2016

More than a dozen dignitaries and veteran Milken Educators joined us at Chester Valley Elementary in Anchorage to welcome Paul Campbell to Alaska's Milken Educator family. Having Dr. Michael Johnson there for Paul's surprise notification was a special treat: Not only is Johnson Alaska's commissioner of education, but he's an Alaska Milken Educator himself (2008).

Paul Campbell, who teaches looped first- and second-grade, can often be heard singing with his young students, using music to create a sense of community, smooth classroom transitions and practice literacy skills (e.g. belting out Disney’s "Let It Go" while reading the lyrics). When Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, asked Paul during the assembly why singing was important, he looked over to his students and said, "Because it's super fun!"
