3030 Publishing is proud to honor and spotlight this month’s Educator of the Month, recognizing the exceptional contributions of Trent Pyne from Linfield Christian and Ed Campos from Kings County Office of Education. Their dedication to nurturing both the minds and hearts of students perfectly embodies our belief that a true education transcends academic knowledge alone.

Trent Pyne stands out for his remarkable ability to connect with students on a personal level, leveraging his extensive experience in coaching sports to build relationships that pave the way for academic and personal development. He firmly believes in the power of positive energy and getting to know his students personally, asserting, “If it’s in class or at practice, my students know that I care by the way my energy is always positive. I get to know them before I expect them to get to know what I am teaching for the day.” This approach not only fosters a supportive learning environment but also motivates students to engage more deeply with their education.

Ed Campos is celebrated for his commitment to empathy, mindfulness, and innovation in the educational process. He emphasizes the importance of empathy in teaching and problem-solving, stating, “First and foremost, I think that modeling empathy as an adult is imperative, showing students and staff the value of understanding and caring for one another.” Through Design Thinking sessions and a variety of mindfulness practices, Ed encourages students to find personal strategies for emotional regulation and self-awareness, fostering a nurturing space for individual growth and learning.

The efforts of Trent and Ed highlight the essence of holistic education, where teaching is not just about imparting knowledge but also about developing the emotional and social skills necessary for students to thrive in life. Their work is a testament to the impactful role educators play in shaping compassionate, resilient, and well-rounded individuals.

3030 Publishing is delighted to celebrate the achievements of Trent Pyne and Ed Campos, whose innovative and empathetic approaches to education serve as an inspiration to all. Their dedication reminds us of the profound difference caring educators can make in the lives of their students.
