Prior to joining Galena Park ISD, Sanchez worked for Austin ISD and Weslaco ISD for 11 years in roles with increasing responsibility including teacher, team leader, curriculum specialist, and assistant principal.

“I look forward to working collaboratively with Lockhart ISD's instructional leaders, teachers, and community in ensuring student access to relevant, rigorous curricula and systems that assure the instructional efficacy needed for students to be college, career, and military ready,” said Sanchez.

“In searching for our new director of secondary education, the district interviewed a number of qualified candidates,” added Interim Superintendent Kimberly Brents. “Ms. Sanchez emerged as the top choice as an educational leader with a wealth of experience that will benefit our secondary students.”
