Supporting Students to be Whatever they Want to Be

Mary Sanchez, Pepsi/Foundation Teacher of the Month went into teaching because of her love of kids.

When Mary Sanchez graduated high school, she didn’t exactly know what she wanted to be.  Almost four decades later she says it is her love of kids that keeps her going every day at Alameda Elementary.  Sanchez is this month’s Pepsi/APS Education Foundation’s teacher of the month.

Sanchez tells her students that just like her they can be anything they want to be.  Adding that she plays with the students just as well as teaching them.

This is the sixth year that Pepsi and the APS Education Foundation have honored a teacher of the month.
