Original post made on Jul 3, 2012

Not many teachers get their room number retired, but not every teacher is Anita Sanchez, who was teaching at Fairlands Elementary before there was even a Fairlands, back when the school was in temporary quarters. "We were housed at the Catholic Church," Sanchez said. "I guess I was one of the originals."

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.
