Mrs. Sanchez was one of the best teachers. I still have my super star of the week card from her class. Her classroom was always such a fun and loving environment. Congradulations on retirement. You have touched many kids lives.

Anita and I graduated from Amador in June 1965. I was the captain of the 1964 football team when she was the Homecoming Queen. I remember giving her a dozen roses and a kiss on the cheek on the 50 yard line at Homecoming! Every guy in town was envious! More importantly, Anita is a GREAT person and still a friend. Good luck in your retirement. Larry.
