Diane Campbell has recognized the impact of Iowa ASCD, noting that it provides valuable leadership and support for educators across Iowa. As president as well as in other roles, she has found an opportunity to continue to grow the vision of Iowa ASCD and increase networking in the state of Iowa. Throughout her career, as a teacher, principal, and district administrator, Iowa ASCD has supported her learning. She is dedicated to Iowa ASCD’s vision of “being a responsive network of educational leaders that serves as the first choice for those who influence instructional policy and practices in Iowa. Iowa ASCD is committed to excellence and is responsive to the current climate of education.” Her role as president is to advance the work of the organization and provide a collaborative and proactive response to the needs of educators across Iowa. And she does that so well, focusing on promoting learning, teaching, and leading through instructional leadership in Iowa.
P.S.: And she loves being a grandma – her newest and greatest “hobby.”
