Welcome From the Principal

Dear Camellia Families,

As your new principal of Camellia Basic, I would like to welcome everyone to the 2016/2017 school year. It is my honor and privilege to join your community as your new principal this year. I couldn’t be happier to be welcomed into this warm, enthusiastic, and dedicated community.

I became a teacher because I wanted to make a difference in how students were educated and given a fair chance in becoming all they can be. As I begin my 21st year in education, I believe one of the greatest gifts of being an educator is the opportunity to see students grow and develop to their full potential. I bring great commitment, dedication, and enthusiasm for this school of diverse, high achieving students, and to continue to implement the GATE cluster program in a Basic School model. I look forward to working with all of you as we continue to carry on the tradition of Camellia’s hard work in providing the best educational experience in SCUSD. 

Sincerely yours,

Suzanne McKelvey
