James Sanchez, Governor Bent ES

James Sanchez is retiring after 28 years as an elementary teacher. He has worked at both Alamosa and Monte Vista elementary schools, and has spent the past 21 years at Governor Bent. In the words of one of James' former students, "What is special about Mr. Sanchez is his ability to be a great role model and understand and relate to kids' lives."

James has a gift for storytelling as well, and students frequently return to visit him, citing the wonderful narratives of his many life experiences as one of their fondest memories. 

A retirement celebration in his honor will be held at 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 16, in the Governor Bent Library.
