Biographical Information

Third-grade teacher Tomeka Campbell's many instructional approaches motivate each of her students at Park Avenue Elementary in Danville. Cooperative grouping, learning stations and hands-on activities, all supported by technology that targets Standards of Learning objectives, help Mrs. Campbell's students master challenging content and develop strong skills. To make parents active partners in their children's learning, she produces brochures that outline her academic and behavioral expectations, encourages parent volunteering, and regularly reports on students' progress. Mrs. Campbell also played a key role on Park Avenue's Character Committee: after locating an effective character education program on the Internet, she conducted an inservice to explain the program to teachers, organized the activities and planned daily announcements.
