Jeremiah Campbell has a passion to see the next generation succeed. He believes in access of high quality, rigorous, relative, and equitable education for all students. Jeremiah sought a position with the Monroe School Board because he believes one of the best ways to contribute and positively impact our community is through the public education system. He was appointed to the board in January of 2021 to fill the vacant Director of District 1 position.
Jeremiah was raised in Sequim, WA and was unsure about attending college after graduating from high school. He started locally at Peninsula Community College in Port Angeles where he found a love for teaching as he worked as a tutor, one of his several part-time jobs. Jeremiah finished a bachelor’s degree (B.A.) in Spanish and a master’s degree (Ed.M.) in Multicultural & Bilingual Education from Washington State University (Go Cougs!). Jeremiah has also earned master’s degrees (M.A., & M.Div.) from Global University, as well as a doctorate (D.Min.) from Biola Univeristy.
While in college, Jeremiah proposed to his girlfriend, Marjorie, and they were married shortly after graduation. Jeremiah & Marjorie both started teaching careers in the Wahluke School District in Mattawa, WA. Later they moved to Grandview, WA and worked in the school district there. During that time, Jeremiah gained experience as a Spanish and ESL teacher working primarily with migrant families. He also became certified and worked as a GLAD® Instructional Coach, training teachers to work with English language learners.
Jeremiah is also an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God and, while teaching in Grandview, served in his local church as the youth pastor. In 2010, Jeremiah and Marjorie moved overseas to work as full-time missionaries in the country of Bolivia. There they continued to work with youth, young adults, and in education. They established 2 national organizations, one working with college students, and extension of Global University, offering theological education for pastors at the bachelor’s and master’s levels.
Jeremiah and Marjorie moved back the United States in 2020 and fell in love with the Monroe community where they plan to continue raising their family. The Campbells have 2 children in the Monroe School District. Jeremiah is still an educator working as a Spanish teacher at the Northshore School District, an adjunct professor at Northwest University, and an associate dean remotely for Global University.
Jeremiah loves the Seahawks, good coffee, hiking and snowboarding in the Cascades, and spirited game of cribbage with his wife.
