Sanchez is a gem to have as an assistant in special education. She goes above and beyond to meet the needs of the students she works with despite any obstacles presented on any given day.
Her patience and advocacy for students is exceptional. When given support from service providers, she always ensures the delivery recommendations and best practices for her students.
She is a great listener, innovator, and collaborator with a “whatever it takes” attitude to gain success. Sanchez is a blessing to the school, coworkers, students and their families.
Sanchez is a teacher assistant, and a one-on-one aide in a self-contained classroom for students with Autism.

She also assists with being a teacher assistant in two other classrooms after her student leaves for the day.
All of her students are shown love, respect, and concern. Her care and compassion are not only provided for those students with whom she works, but all throughout the school building.
She also is a bright light for her fellow colleagues and administration. Sanchez is willing to help and do whatever is needed to best meet the needs of the students, and for the school as a whole.
