Former member of Camas High School’s security team, Sean Tamura, transitioned to the role of career counselor this year. He took the place of Amira Onuoha who now works as a counselor in the Battle Ground School District.
Tamura enjoys his new role, but he misses the daily interaction with students.
He said, “It feels a little bit more isolated than security, I don’t get to see you guys as much. I’m still planning on trying to bug everybody during lunches and passing period as much as I can.”
CHS’s hybrid school plan started this week and Tamura is excited to finally have more students on campus.
“It felt kind of normal. In a normal year, the first couple of days it’s always helping students who have no idea where they are going. That actually felt pretty good in a weird way. It feels beneficial to finally be back with kids and help them where their classes are,” he said.
He is beloved by the student body and has developed great relationships with students.
CHS Sophomore Josh Dabasinskas said, “I appreciate that Sean cares about the students at Camas. He connects well with students because he expresses similar interests.”
CHS Senior Cameron Miller said, “Having Sean as a security guard and weight coach the past four years has been great. He does a great job connecting with students and building relationships with everyone he encounters.”
Miller added, “I know he will do great things with his new position at the high school.”
