Principal's Welcome

Dear Sandburg Families,

It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as the new principal at Sandburg Elementary. I am excited to be joining the amazing staff, students, families and community. In my first few days here, I had the opportunity to welcome many of you on our first distribution day and already saw what an amazing school we have, full of enthusiastic students, caring educators and staff, and supportive families.

I was born and raised in San Diego and began my “career” as an educator from a very young age when I volunteered in my aunt’s first grade classroom at Zamorano Elementary during school holidays. I went to UCLA where I earned my credential and Master in Education focused on Urban Schooling. After my first year of teaching in Los Angeles, I returned home to San Diego and have been an educator in San Diego Unified for 17 years. Additionally, I am now a proud mom to an enthusiastic toddler, whom I had the honor to adopt at birth just under 3 years ago. Being a mom has put life in a different perspective for me and I now strive to ensure we have a top notch public education system that will support my son Stryker and all students that walk through our doors.

As a classroom educator, I worked hard to provide every student with what they needed to succeed and grow, not only in academics, but also socially and emotionally. I believe parents are our children’s first teacher and an integral part of our educational team. As your new principal, I look forward to being a part of the team that will ensure all students are supported and grow academically and socially.

This will be a year like no other and I know the Sandburg Team will continue to stand together and stand strong as we navigate the unknown. Please know that I am here to support you and your child every step of the way and do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can do!

Together Everyone Achieves More (TEAM),

Lindsay Burningham
