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!
