Carly Sturm

Our students’ most important first teachers are their parents, families, and home communities. I look forward to working closely with Lakewood staff to develop rich and powerful learning partnerships with our families and community members. The heart of why I am in education is to support students in loving learning and building their capacity to become their most exceptional selves. 

I have been part of education for the last eighteen years, most recently as assistant principal of Cumberland Elementary School in Sunnyvale.  I have also coached and mentored new teachers, taught elementary and middle school classes, and worked in several area districts.. Prior to teaching, I had a career in graphic design and continue to have a passion for art and design. 

On a personal level, I am a Bay Area native who grew up and lives in Saratoga with my husband and 6-year-old girl/boy twins. We love cooking, reading, spending time in nature, visiting museums, making art, and riding bikes. 

I look forward to a positive, productive, and engaging year ahead!
