Mr. Campanelli was born and raised in New York City, and spent the first half of his adult life in the performing arts industry, dividing his time between the east and west coasts. In 2000, he decided to make a switch to pursue teaching, another great passion, and he hasn’t looked back since!
Mr. Campanelli, known to his students as Mr.C., graduated from California State University with a BA degree in Education (Linguistics), and a Master’s in Education and Language Learning is soon to follow. Prior to moving to Arizona, he spent ten years working at an independent school in southern California where he taught and worked in various aspects of school life, and continued to enjoy teaching at the upper elementary/middle school level after coming to Arizona. He is very excited to be here at New Way, alongside talented colleagues and awesome students, and he looks forward to personally meeting everyone in the community.
When not teaching or in class, Mr. Campanelli enjoys spending time with his family and traveling at every possible opportunity.
