Sandra Tolbert

As a passionate, positive, community focused educator of young minds, Sandy Tolbert has an authentic desire for the Campbell School of Innovation to launch successfully and flourish.

She believes that teaching young students to develop a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset is integral to helping them develop skills for success in their future careers.

“Students are capable of so much,” she says. “They are valuable assets to their community, despite their young age. My goal is to nurture that quality in our students and help make a positive impact on those around us.”

Tolbert brings 16 years of teaching experience to CSI. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Child Development from San Jose State University and a Master of Science degree in Education from Walden University. She was the 2015 Marshall Lane Teacher of the Year, she was a 2015 Goldin Foundation for Excellence in Education award recipient, and she was a 2016 ArtsEdGrant recipient.

She lives in Campbell with her husband and children.
