Mrs. Claudia Sánchez
Welcome! I am very excited to be the Coordinator for School Improvement. This is my eleventh year as an educator, all of them spent proudly serving the Edgewood Community. During my tenure in EISD, I have served as a first, third, and fourth grade teacher, serving both monolingual and bilingual students at Roosevelt Elementary, as an Instructional Facilitator/Coach at Gus Garcia Middle, and then Assistant Principal, also at Gus Garcia Middle School. I look forward to an enriching experience as I work alongside campuses and administrators, helping guide our students to become independent thinkers and life-long learners while increasing their academic achievement.
From a very young age, my parents instilled in me the value of education. I graduated from Dr. Leo G. Cigarroa High School in Laredo, Texas and attended St. Mary's University in San Antonio, where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish and Political Science. After working in the business world for more than ten years, I went back to school to attain my teaching certification. I then enrolled at Lamar University in Beaumont where I earned a Master of Arts Degree in Education Administration with Principal Certification.
