Learning Best practice 'Girl power' the focus of unique class By Sherry Posnick-Goodwin G I N A C A M P B E L L D O V E into a 3-foot pool 10 years ago. She broke her neck and became a quad- riplegic. She could easily have become bitter, angry and depressed. Instead, she got better. She married. She recently graduated from law school, so she can represent others who have suffered injuries resulting in neurological damage. She also devotes herself to cooking (she has limited use of her arms), reforming parking laws for the disabled, and promoting the National Spinal Cord Injury Association's Arizona chapter she founded. Students watch a screen during a Skype session with Gina Campbell. Yolanda Hernandez (center) says, "I love this class. It's really been eye-opening." 40 A P R I L 2 0 1 4 Educator 04 Apr 2014 v2.3 int.indd 40 4/15/14 12:05 AM
