Mrs. Sanchez was without a doubt the best teacher I ever had.  And this is because she became a freind to me.  She was the only teacher I ever had who hugged me every time I checked into PE.  I have tears in my eyes as I write this because I loved her like a Mom.  She always had a warm smile and kind words for me and never told me I was a clutz like another PE teacher I had in junior high.  Hee, hee.

God took her way too soon. 

Love to you Mrs. Sanchez and I hope to see you in heaven some day.  I know you're there, and I hope I get there too.

Mrs. Sanchez was an inspiration to me, as somewho who was straight forward, understated, but strong.  She showed us all respect, and had a big heart.  She showed integrity, and did not pass gossip.

She was my track coach and swimming coach, and encouraged all of us. After high jump in 1969, I was shocked to find that the school eliminated the girls track team.  I had certainly planned to continue, becasue I loved to jump, and I loved the camaraderie that Mrs. Sanchez helped to foster among the girls.

I have thought of her many times over the years.  A fabulous woman.
