Mrs. Sanchez

Hello everyone! 

I'm Mrs. Sanchez.  I have the honor of being your child's 5th-grade teacher for the 2023-2024 school year. I'm thrilled to join the MYE family and look forward to getting to know you.  This is my first year at Malala and my 8th year as a teacher. Previously, I taught at Harmony Science Academy, with a focus on STEM education in 5th grade. I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment where all students can achieve their educational goals.  

I'm originally from Austin, where I graduated from Lanier High School - home of the "Mighty Vikings"!  I earned my bachelor's degree from Texas State University in San Marcos back when it was called Southwest Texas State University or SWT for short!

In 1997, I moved to Richmond, where I worked as an Adult Educator for the Cancer Society & the Diabetes Association, earned my ESL & EC - 6 teaching certificate from the University of Houston, & met my husband of 22 years.  We have 3 kids. Our oldest daughter, who is 19, is a sophomore at Caltech in Pasadena, California, and works at the Hixon Writing Center. Our son is 18, a freshman at UT Austin, and works as an AV Technician for the Texas Union & runs his own Web Development business part-time.  Our youngest daughter is 15, a sophomore in high school, enjoys horse riding, and is a member of  TSA & Junior Achievement.    

I love spending time with family & friends, working in my garden, going to the beach, the movies, or going for a walk.  

Thank you for entrusting me with your child's education.  I look forward to working with you and your child to make this a memorable year.  I believe in partnering with parents and having an open line of communication, so don't hesitate to contact me at, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's academic goals. 


Have a great 2023 - 2024 school year.
