Sandi Vanderpool is more than just a health teacher at Plainview Old Bethpage JFK High School. She is a mentor, advisor, friend, and surrogate parent to her students.

Sandi is also a fighter. Although she is courageously battling cancer, Sandi has not let the disease take away her passion for life and for her work, as she continues to spend each day advising and inspiring her students.

Nominated by a former student, Sandi obviously has left a lasting impact on everyone she has met and has provided a wonderful role model for her students.
