    Greetings from Mrs. Sanchez!!

    Greetings Sneed Family!

    Julianna and I want to wish you an amazing Staff Appreciation Week! What you do makes a difference and it is our hope that this week you feel and hear just how special you are. Your commitment to our students does not go unnoticed and despite how challenging your tasks may be every day, know that what you do shapes their lives, their families, their community, and our world. Thank you for choosing the most rewarding career there is.

    We also want to extend a huge shout out to 3rd and 4th grade (and everyone supporting them) as they take the STAAR tests next week. You worked hard all year long and now is your time to shine! In the words of Dr. Seuss, "And will you suceed? Yes! You will indeed! 98 and 3/4th percent guaranteed!" Make the most of this last week with your students! Balance the work with fun to keep students engaged.

    Finally, I want thank you for all the text messages, emails, and phone calls over the last few weeks. We are both doing well and miss everyone very much!

    Happy Mother's Day to all the Marvelous Mothers! Isn't this the best job ever?

    Have a great week everyone,

    Mrs. Sanchez

    Get to Know Our Staff! Jannette Ramirez

    My name is Jannette Ramirez.

    I was born in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico but grew up in Michigan. I've lived in Canada, Virginia, New York and New Jersey but I have been in Houston since 1998 and I love it here.

    I have a B.A. in Education and have worked with children in some capacity for over 10 years, this includes working as a Direct Care Specialist, Paraprofessional, Case Manager for Unaccompanied Minors Programs and now as a Teacher.

    Before that, I worked in the medical field with Memorial Hermann and St. Lukes Episcopal Hospital. The most important thing in my life are my kids and spending time with them.

    I love music, dancing, movies and traveling, but my passion is soccer. My favorite team is FC Barcelona which I had the opportunity to see during a UEFA Champions League game last month in Spain.

    Favorite movie: The Pursuit of Happiness

    Favorite colors: red and black

    Favorite actors: Robert De Niro and Denzel Washington

    Favorite quote: "Strength does not come from winning, your struggles develop your strengths, when you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is your strength."
