Zac is a fun kid. He has a inquisitive mind and likes working out solutions that are challenging. Zac quickly analyzes what he sees and is able to articulate his understanding. Zac is naturally playful and is not afraid of a challenge. I have seen Zac do things that are hard and at times scary for him to do. Zac enjoys participating in sports and loves being with his family. Zac is a great son and a good friend.

Ms Campos is not only the best teacher but also a mentor and coach for my children. She was my son's favorite teacher. My daughter also had Ms Campos. When my daughter had migraines at school Ms Campos would let my daughter use her essential oil to ease the pain of the migraine. Whenever my daughter, son or myself had a question about an assignment or grade we would email her and Ms Campos would always respond within minutes even late in the evening. She treats her students as a parent treats their own child, with caring support! The kids feel her genuine concern for their education and well being; which makes children respond by wanting to work hard in her class. I'm very grateful to Ms Campos for providing a listening ear for my daughter when our family underwent a tumultuous time. Ms Campos is not only a skilled educator but a true mentor, which truly impacts a child throughout their life. We all have our favorite teachers who spark a light in our soul. Ms Campos has been that kind of teacher for both my children!

Ms. Campos is a wonderful Biology teacher. She knows how to teach her subject in a way that is interesting to the students. She is concerned about the students and is interested in them learning. I appreciate how she keeps parents informed on what is happening in the classroom and what is expected of the students. She is very deserving of this award.

Cat Posted 9 months ago

My daughter is extremely bright but struggles with anxiety. Ms. Campos provides an environment where she feels comfortable, and enjoys learning. She used to be interested in science, but now she has found a passion for it. Ms. Campos has created an environment where a student who struggles in social environments is actively engaged. To me - that is awesome! My daughter has often said that she feels that Ms. Campos cares about the education of all of her students. I know that she cares about my daughter’s education. She has treated my daughter with kindness, and without judgement. I am thankful that Ms. Campos is a positive role model for my daughter, during this pivotal time in her life!

Heather Crowther Posted 9 months ago

My son is in Mrs. Campo's class and I am beyond grateful for the opportunity he gets in having a teacher that really does know how to teach and prepare kids for their future. I've witnessed my son blossom and express more enthusiasm in wanting to take summer classes and attend a early college high school. I truly believe she has contributed to his success. Thanks for being such a great teacher!

I got to know Mrs. Vynessa Campos when she was doing an administrative internship with me several years ago. She was easy to work with and she immediately stepped in and got to work. She was happy to do whatever I needed help with. I was very impressed with the way she worked with students, especially those who were sent to the office with behavior concerns. She put them at ease and worked with them to solve their problems. Her quick wit and cheerful personality helped the teachers and parents feel comfortable and develop trust in her abilities and willingness to help them with whatever they needed. I can see why she has been nominated for the Lifechanger of the Year Award. She always has the best interest of students at heart.

I have known Vynessa Campos for over 40 years. It comes as no surprise to me that she has been nominated for this award. She is not only passionate about learning and teaching she is one of the most compassionate people I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. Vynessa only speaks kind words to everyone and regarding everyone. She is relentless in making sure that everyone has a positive experience in her presence. Being able to adapt the same content for each individual student in order for them to enjoy the greatest benefit is a special gift that not all teachers have. Mrs. Campos embodies that talent.

Alicia Yost Clark Posted 11 months ago

Eleven years ago when I began my own teaching career Vynessa was one of my mentors. She helped me through the rough times and laughed with through the good times. She gave me advice on how to deal with parents and students. I could tell she cared. What I remember most about teaching with Vynessa is her love for her students. She was always respectful, kind and patient. She worked hard to reach the unreachable. She truly is an amazing, hard working, kind hearted teacher.

Judith Allsop Posted 11 months ago

I worked with Vanessa’s husband Javier, and I was only 19 years old. I was in a pivotal moment of my life of making decisions to stop a party life and giving back to my community and changing my values and life. I converted to the LDS religion and Javier was always a Honorable man, I reached a moment where I didn’t have support from anyone in my life not even my parents. I felt alone, so I decided it was ok, so I asked Javier if his wife can take me to the temple to help receive my ordainces and she was willing to! Not even knowing me at all. It gave me hope in humanity , because of the awful life I lived prior, and she got me through. My life changed forever and have never looked back. She has been my friend since! I can say a total stranger believed in me and helped me to do something so hard for me, and made sure I understood how valuable I was. I’m not surprised she has been selected for this award. I am a happy and humbled 32 year old mother, wife for 10 years and former LDS Missionary. I’m grateful for women like Vanessa who touch the hearts of children, to be their better selves. She will always be my angel and her husband! Please give her this award there is no one more deserving!

Natalie Nielsen Posted 11 months ago

I worked with Vynessa Campos at the start of my teaching career and I can't think of a more deserving teacher. She willingly shared innovative teaching ideas that applied to all content areas; she always brought a positive demeanor to the room; she invested in cross curricular activities, she willingly tackled the more challenging students and earned their respect, and she always was willing to help her fellow teachers. Campos is a dedicated teacher that all should emulate and I feel so lucky to have worked with her, and learned from her, for several years.

James Olsen Posted 11 months ago

Vynessa has helped me many times with technology advice and classroom management strategies. She cares about our students at Elk Ridge and works hard to help them learn and be successful. I'm proud to call her my friend and colleague.

Brooklyn Jensen Posted over a year ago

There is no one that deserves this more than her! I have never met anyone who didn't absolutely love Campos! She is so kind and loving towards everyone and she definitely changed my life!

Katie Haney Osborn Posted over a year ago

Mrs. Campos embodies a modern teacher, who allows her students to be more than just automatic machines who do nothing more than what they're told to. She's kind and understanding of students who fall behind, and tries to help them catch up. She treats her students politely, but isn't afraid to discipline them when necessary. Creativity, not just science, flourishes in her classroom. Teachers like her should be the example we have for our future educators. Instead of promoting only the good and ignoring the rest, Mrs, Campos encourages everyone to participate in activities, even if you aren't perfect. Her classroom promotes kindness and good words, instead of the hateful racism I see in my other classes. Truly, Mrs. Campos brings out the good in this school and the people around her. She makes me want to succeed in this class, she makes me care about this class. Her use of technology is also excellent, even allowing students to use their phones to look up words they don't know. She's funny as well, and promotes comedy along with and as a resource to promote learning. Many of my other teachers often lose their cool and yell at us, unable to take the toxic environment that is all too common in many classrooms, but Mrs. Campos doesn't even have to try. As I said before, her very presence promotes goodwill and friendship. Students who make vile jokes in my other classes act as a force of good in here. A student's behavior isn't just the student, but also a response to the often restrictive environment students are placed in. You can see the effect of her teaching just by looking below (and hopefully above) this comment. 85 thank yous isn't enough for a teacher that shows the true power of teaching. You never understand just how much effect a teacher has on their students until dreams are broken and potential wasted. Instead of wasted potential, the teachings of Mrs. Campos will create exceeded potential. Realize now that good teaching isn't optional. Realize now that us students are more than just dumb little machines. We're more than just pointless beings, we're millions of voices, and when you allow those voices to flourish, the future only gets brighter. I can think of no better reason for Mrs. Campos to get this reward.

Mikayla Glauser Posted over a year ago

Mrs.Campos is one of the coolest teachers by far that I've ever had! I have learned so much already in her biology class, and it's only been 3 months! Not only have I learned a lot but she is really nice and understanding when it comes to late and make up work. If you need any extra help understanding the concept, she is always willing to. She not only has changed my life, but all her students' lives as well.

Christoper Nguyen Posted over a year ago

She is an awesome teacher and always cares about all of her students. If there is a problem she is the first to find out and find a way to peacefully resolve it.

Mrs. Campos is one of the best science teachers I have ever had. She actually teaches the material clearly and doesn't say "Okay kids, do the packet and you will learn stuff," like some other teachers do. She does fun ways of teaching so we will actually remember the stuff we learn.

Mrs. Campos is truly an inspirational teacher that has helped me learn the topics of Biology and made sure that I understood the lessons. You can tell that she loves being around students and enjoys teaching every student in her class. Mrs. Campos is amazing and provides everyone with a full education.

Mrs. Campos also teaches at the Adult High School for Jordan School District. She has the ability to keep her non-traditional students engaged in her science lessons as well as incorporate technology into those lessons. Teaching adult learners can be challenging and she has the ability to keep them engaged in the content and develop of love of science in the process. The class she teaches is new to our program and she has been very successful in helping it grow. Students are excited to know they will get the face to face interaction with Mrs. Campos and be one step closer to their high school completion diploma. We all know earning a high school diploma is a "life-changer" and Mrs. Campos exemplifies those qualities and directly affects the lives of our students.

I had ms. campos for my ninth grade honors biology class, it was one of my most informative and fun class i have taken. I learned more in that class than i have in many other classes, she made learning fun. I actually looked forward to going to class and i don't look forward to most of my classes. I wish all my teachers were as caring and informative as ms. campos

My wife always has been an inspiration for me. Her honesty, dedication and love of helping others is a gift that she uses while educating our future generations. I have witnessed how much time she invests in her classroom, preparing her classes and always looking for opportunities to serve not only her students, but her peers and the educational system. Vynessa Campos is a professional who takes any opportunity to grow as an individual and educator. She is always willing to disseminate new knowledge without ego or fear. She is the most selfless person I know in the academic world. Her desire for her students is to love school and become successful. I love her so much and I am humbly grateful for her nomination. She is an anonymous hero who has touched the lives of many students and co-workers. I am so honored to be her eternal husband, her friend and her colleague.

Cayla Callus Posted over a year ago

I was in Mrs. Campos's biology class 2 years ago and I still remember the things I learned. I didn't only learn the course material, I was taught that I could do anything I put my mind to. Not only is she a great teacher, she is extremely caring. She cares about her students and let's them know that everyday. It's been two years since I've been in her class and she still asks me how I'm doing and let's me know she cares. She has changed many lives for the better and continues to do it everyday!

Abi Chamberlain Posted over a year ago

She has the essential qualities of patience, persistence, and perseverance. She combines all of those with careful caring, all of which builds confidence in her students. In addition to the academic lessons she teaches, she created a sense of value in her students. Science comes to life under her creative hand. She is so deserving of this award.

She always finds a way to make usually dull topics lively and amusing for everyone in the class. She is always open to questions and concerns of others which has made her one of my most approachable teachers. She always shows how she cares about what is being taught which really helps me to be interested in the lesson. She truly is astounding! Thank you so much for all you do Mrs. Campos!

Courtney Posted over a year ago

Vynessa is so kind, to students and faculty alike. She doesn't discriminate and she doesn't judge. She is warm and welcoming to anyone who steps foot into her classroom and makes you feel like you belong. She takes time out of her day to answer questions and to give advice, as a colleague, a teacher, a friend, and a mentor. She has 100% changed my life in the short time I've known her. Thank you, Mrs. Campos!!

Ella Pilling Posted over a year ago

Mrs.Campos really knows how to help individual people. She has this magic power to somehow know how each person needs to learn and is able to help everyone, using their own methods. She really connects and is able to get the knowledge we learn in her class into our heads, Her class is always enjoyable and i look forward to it everyday!

Ms. Campos is one of the greatest teachers. She really goes out of her way to try to understand us and help us make sure that we completely understand what she is teaching us. One amazing aspect that she displays is her patience with all students. It doesn't matter how long it takes, she will do anything to help us be able to learn and grow. Her number one goal is our success. It doesn't matter if our goals are in her class or another class or even somewhere besides school, she is genuinely interested in what is going on and she will support us in everything we do. It is always a rewarding experience to be a part of her classroom.

Kristy Tran Posted over a year ago

Amanda Mair Posted over a year ago

Vynessa very much is a lifechanger, both inside and outside of her classroom. She is keenly aware of the needs of the students in her classroom, and is somehow able to meet those diverse needs! There are many students in our school who know that Vynessa is someone they can turn to for help and understanding. She also goes above and beyond to ensure that all of her students are learning, even those who struggle the most. To her colleagues, Vynessa shows the same concern and compassion for those she interacts with. She may be quiet by nature, but her actions of acceptance speak loudly for her. Every day, in every situation, Vynessa is changing lives for the good, and we are lucky to have such an extraordinary human at our school.

Baylee Posted over a year ago

Mrs Campos creates a fun environment in her classroom. She makes it exciting to walk into class, because you never know what we'll be doing today. On top of that, she makes everyone feel safe, like you can talk without be judged. Whenever I walk into her classroom, I feel like she's genuinely happy to see me there.

Jenna Atkinson Posted over a year ago

Susan Elliott Posted over a year ago

Mrs. Campos is a life changer. As a teacher, she demonstrates how students come before her curriculum. She is constantly listening to her students, I am a Special Education teacher who has had the great opportunity to spend time in her class as she taught. I watched her make sure all students were engaged in not only learning but, in human interaction. Students leave her class rewarded with strength, confidence, and curiosity that may not have had otherwise.

Alishia Huefner Posted over a year ago

Ms. Campos creates a positive, supportive atmosphere in her classroom. She makes great use of technology. She treats her students with respect and they know she cares about them. She makes science engaging and fun. She is indeed a life changer in the lives of her students.

Sharon Jensen Posted over a year ago

Vynessa brings her love of science and students together even in the summer months as she works at Valley High School in our summer school program. The program has two 3 week long sessions and the students who attend have all failed the course during the regular school year. She is engaging, entertaining, and students who were generally reluctant learners wanted to come to her class! Wow! Any school could use a teacher like her every single day. Her kindness and warmth shines through all of her interactions with students, colleagues, and community. She is very deserving because she really is a life changing teacher!

Jannifer Young Posted over a year ago

Vynessa is compassionate and kind to everyone. She is an ally to the LGBTQ community and promotes acceptance. I love how open minded she is and how she is able to listen without judgement. Vynessa truly deserves this award. Way to go, Vynessa!

Ms. Campos is an amazing teacher, I have had her for two years and each year I improve greatly. She knows when to teach but she helps greatly as an individual as well. I greatly appreciate her and wish I could take her with me as a high school teacher.

Rylie Kershaw Posted over a year ago

Ms.Campos is so cool. All she wants for us is to be kind and love everyone. I remember on the first day of school she talked about all of the hate in the world and how we have the power to change that. She doesn't want us just to learn science she wants us to learn that we have a place in the world and the power to do good. Ms.Campos has stayed after school to help me many times and has come extra early to help me as well. She's always willing to help any student or teacher.

Anabelle Thomas Posted over a year ago

Mrs. Campose is a very nice and creative teacher! I find that all my years in Elk Ridge (9th grader) her class is the easiest to recall science info from.(Out of all my science classes) She is extremely helpful and funny! She's an amazing teacher.s

Kristie Post Wallace Posted over a year ago

I have worked with Vynessa over the last 5 school years in several capacities and I am always impressed with her and her interactions with others. Though a task or assignment might be difficult for her, she will organize herself and others involved in order to create a positive experience that impacts the school and the community for good. I have been in her classroom as a co-teacher for a time and I learned so much from her about how to care about students, how to set up and review classroom procedures, how to do quick but patient transitions, and how to organize a classroom. Vynessa has not only impacted her colleagues but more importantly, she positively influences her students. Often times I hear how much students love her and her class and learn a lot from her strategies and abilities. Often times I hear of how much she cares about individual students from the students themselves. She is welcoming and a listening and trustful ear for many at our school. She takes time to talk to individual students and even to listen to me vent about things for a bit. She has definitely changed my life and the lives of countless others.

Kelly Melrose Posted over a year ago

Vynessa is not only very helpful for the students but the teachers as well. She will always use whatever she can to help other teachers with different websites and or teaching hints and tricks. She is a great leader and great colleague to work with each and every day.

Chris Lyon Posted over a year ago

I have worked with Vynessa at two different schools. The thing that impresses me most about Vynessa is her genuine desire to help at risk students. She was the youth in custody advisor for many years. During that time she worked with students, some of which have survived horrible things, and helped them overcome their difficulties. Vynessa is an advocate for at risk students and is constantly reminding teachers to be mindful of them and their circumstances. Vynessa shares articles and insights showing how we, as teachers, can help these students succeed. Vynessa loves these kids, as if they were her own children. Having worked with her for a decade has made me a better teacher and mentor to my students!
