Welcome to Ms. Sanchez's Teacher Page

Dear and students and families during this Shelter in Place Ms. Swatt and I will be posting assignments through Google Classroom. If you have any questions do not hesitate to email either of us to help answer your questions or any concerns you may have.
I am an Alder Resident Teacher, co-teaching with Ms. Swatt. I have lived in the Bay Area my whole life. I love to go out with my family and enjoy the outdoors. I love working with students, enjoy, and love teaching as well as advocating for students and families who need it most. I am also an Edendale Middle School and San Lorenzo High School alumni.
What Inspires Me – My family inspires me to keep going by lots of love and support.

“Culturally responsive teaching means reflecting and being willing to listen and change in order to respond positively and constructively” (Zaretta Hammond).


“When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower” (Alexander Den Heijer).


College – I am a Bear and attended UC Berkeley for my B.A. in Music. I am currently an Alder Resident and will be receiving my teaching credentials and Masters in Education from the University of the Pacific.
