"Mr. Lindblad brings an energy and enthusiasm to his classroom that is unique," said Principal John Koch in a press release. "Through social studies, he encourages students to become citizens of the world, making him an asset to our school and our community."

Each year Lindblad's students raise awareness or funds in the community to help local, national or international places in need.

His classes have helped citizens in Haiti, Japan, New Jersey and the Philippines by making dresses for children in orphanages, holding benefit concerts or events and working with local restaurants.

In addition to his work at Gresham High, Lindblad prepares the next generation of social studies instructors by working with student teachers.
