Keynote Speaker.

Dr. Phil Campbell, known to his students as PC, is a 16-year educator with a passion for loving kids. His goal is to assist schools in becoming the best learning environments they can possibly be for students to learn and for teachers to teach. His philosophy to accomplish this is simple: be present and put relationships first, learn to genuinely love one another, and create a sense of family within your school setting in order to be impactful.

With educational experience as a teacher, coach, athletic director, and principal, PC will highlight, motivate and inspire middle school educators to imagine ways they can transform their classroom culture in ways never thought of before.
