Mrs. Amelia Sanchez » Welcome to Seventh Grade

Welcome to Seventh Grade

My name is Mrs. Amelia Sanchez and I will be your seventh grade homeroom teacher.  I will be targeting the junior high science, language, and vocabulary studies.  This is my second year at STM and I am truly blessed to be part of such an amazing team of teachers and staff.  I spend my days with my fabulous students and enjoy working with such supportive parents.
I come from a large Mexican-American family and since I was in the second grade at Our Lady of Guadalupe in East Los Angeles, I felt the calling to become a catholic school teacher.  I received my Bachelor's Degree in Child Development from Cal State LA and obtained a preliminary teacher's credential and Master's Degree in Education from Loyola Marymount University.  This is my seventeenth year teaching within the catholic school system.  I taught fifth grade for nine years, eighth grade for five, and this is my third year teaching the seventh grade.     
Aside from teaching, my husband of twenty years and I coordinate a young adult ministry at our home parish.  We have four incredible children and serving the Lord fortifies our lives as a family. 
You child's academic, social, and spiritual development along with their safety are my priority.  I look forward in working as a team in creating a hopeful future!
Many blessings,
