Welcome to The Journey School! My name is Mr. Lundquist. The last four years I have been on quite the adventure. I toured around the country as a traveling teacher, working with Broadway shows that had child performers. Through that, I was able to travel to 34 different states, as well as Canada and Japan! This year, I’m excited to get back to my roots– I grew up in a small town about an hour north of the cities and graduated from the University of Minnesota-Morris. I’m my spare time, I enjoy watching any of the local sports teams, or training for endurance sports such as half marathons or triathlons.

My name is Ms. Gold. I am thrilled to be here at The Journey School. This is my twenty-second year of teaching. I’ve taught almost every grade Pre-K through 8, and for the last twelve years my focus was in middle school. I am the mother of four grown children, two of whom are teachers as well! I enjoy being a part of the educational lives of children and look forward to a wonderful year. My hobbies include running, yoga, and reading. Teaching is definitely my calling, and I love it!

Hi my name is Sheila Shambley.  I live in Maplewood, Minnesota.  I have worked in the Special Education Department for seven years: four years as an assistant; three years as a teacher at LoveWorks Academy.  I’m currently a student at Minneapolis Community and Technical College to further and enhance my career in Education.

I enjoy walking around the lake and roller skating.  I volunteer once a month at Mary’s Daycare working with four-year-olds to prepare them for school.  I am excited to be a Special Ed Teacher here at The Journey School and look forward to working with all the children.  This year will be a wonderful experience!!
