Mr. Lundstrom was been named a 2015-16 Javits-Frasier scholar by the National Association for Gifted Children.
Only 12 teachers nationally were recognized and Lundstrom was the only California educator to be named a Javits-Frasier scholar.
The Javits-Frasier Teacher Scholarship Fund for Diverse Talent Development recognizes passionate, innovative educators who work in districts that serve students from low-income and minority populations that are historically underrepresented in gifted education.
Camellia teachers recently hosted the second Camellia Academic Teacher Team (CATT) meeting of the school year, an event that left parents feeling empowered to help their students.
Camellia faculty spent the evening teaching parents academic activities and games to use at home with students. Academic Parent Teacher Teams are a model of parent engagement brought to Sacramento City Unified by the Parent Teacher Home Visit Project, a national nonprofit focused on building trust between schools and 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.
