Mrs. Karen Campbell

 Welcome to the Intermediate Learning Center.  My class provides Special Education services for identified students in grades 4-6, but this year am serving 5th and 6th graders  This is my 32nd year of teaching.  I received my teaching credentials from California State University, Bakersfield. First, I received a credential in Physical Education, then received my Resource Specialist credential, after that was my Learning Handicapped credential, then onto my Preliminary Administrative credential while obtaining a Master's Degree in Special Education. 

I was born and raised in Kern County.  I have been married for 29 years to my high school sweetheart and we have two daughters:  Lauren, 26 and Abigail, 24.  Lauren is a Special Education teacher at Almondale Elementary and Abby lives in Atlanta, Georgia-where she does a multitude of things and hopes to begin a Special Education credential program within the next year. My hobbies are my daughters and husband, wherever it takes us and whatever we do.  I’m excited to be welcoming my first grandchild, a boy, in December of this year!

I was hired by Rosedale in 1994, and have taught at each school in the district except for Del Rio, Freedom, and American.  I have been at Patriot since it opened and would not change a thing about where I am, what I do, or the teachers and students I love working with.  There have been lots of changes in 2020, with the unexpected arrival of Distance Learning in March, I miss my students in person, but am thankful for the “grace” that my district and site administration, secretaries, fellow teachers, parents, and students have shown me as this “old dog, learns new tricks”!  I am thrilled and blessed to work at Patriot!
