The Juneau School District has decided on an assistant principal for Dzantik’i Heeni Middle School, after the prior person in that role took over the school’s top job recently.
Gary Campbell, who served as interim assistant principal this year, will retain the position and lose the “interim” designation.
Previously, Campbell taught math and science at Dzantik’i Heeni. He has more than 25 years of experience in education in Juneau and has worked extensively with high risk and special needs students.
“I am very happy to be a part of a team that is moving in such a positive direction,” Campbell said, “and I look forward to doing my part to see that we continue in that direction.”
Campbell’s past work includes helping to establish Yaakoosge Daakahidi Alternative School, developing educational programming at Juneau Youth Services, and teaching adult education at Southeast Regional Resource Center.
Campbell holds a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Wyoming and completed his teaching certification and graduate studies at the University of Alaska Southeast.
