L&C Unanimously: Associate Professor Kimberly Campbell

L&C Unanimously is a series of stories featuring Lewis & Clark faculty and staff donors. Mary Stuart Rogers Associate Professor of Education Kimberly Campbell is a double alumna of Lewis & Clark. She received her BA in English in 1979 and her Master of Arts in Teaching in 1994. She has been teaching at Lewis & Clark since 1999. 

What is your role at Lewis & Clark?

I am an Associate Professor and Chair of Teacher Education. I teach courses for teacher candidates who are learning to be secondary English Language Arts teachers. I also teach a class for all the secondary candidates in Legal Issues for Teachers. As Chair, it’s my privilege to support the talented teacher education faculty, staff, and students.

Why do you support Lewis & Clark?

I earned my BA in English from the college and I did a joint degree in Teaching and Educational  Leadership to earn a Master’s degree and licensure as a teacher and administrator. I am grateful for the personalized education I received at Lewis & Clark and want to support this kind of education for current and future Lewis & Clark students.  

What is your favorite thing about working at Lewis & Clark?

I value the collegiality I experience at Lewis & Clark. I work with amazing colleagues, who support and inspire my work, and I also value the collegiality we foster with teacher candidates in our MAT program.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I enjoy working out on my Peloton Spin Bike as well as swimming at the Zehntbauer pool. I read, or more frequently, listen, to books. I also appreciate my work as Editor of Oregon English Journal for the opportunity this role provides to work with a variety of authors.

What is your favorite book and/or movie?

My favorite book changes often. But I find myself rereading two favorite authors: Brene Brown, who informs my professional life, and Sue Grafton, whose alphabetical mystery series introduced me to the joys of this genre and inspired my daughter’s first name. 

Is there anything people do not know about you?

I grew up just outside of Denver, Colorado and although it is not always fun, I am a die-hard fan of the Denver, Broncos.
