Principal's Message

Dr. Ixchel Sanchez

Welcome TeWinkle Trojans,

It is truly an honor to be part of this community and I look forward to partnering with you to ensure all students are supported and celebrated. Being driven by the individual success and growth of every student. I have devoted my career to educating, inspiring, and advocating for students, both as a classroom teacher and as an administrator. As a first-generation college graduate, I understand the importance of removing any limitations or obstacles for students. I am excited to share my passion, eagerness, and experience to cultivate the educational programs at TeWinkle, but above all, I am ecstatic to observe, listen, learn, and understand what makes TeWinkle thrive.

One of my values is the social and emotional development of each child as they transition from their primary years to early adolescence. During middle school, we recognize that students are developing intellectually and are creating their own independent beliefs. We want to foster a positive environment where we empower our students by recognizing their diverse needs and individual strengths and use that knowledge to build lifelong learners who are also compassionate. 

TeWinkle is made up of an amazing group of people who enjoy students and have dedicated much of their lives to support and help students grow into passionate learners. At TeWinkle we focus on engaging strategies, innovative practices, 21st century learning, and ensuring our students are prepared to be college and career ready. The success of every child involves the partnership between the school community and families. I look forward to meeting you in-person and having an exciting and productive school year. Please know my door is always open to you and I highly encourage you to build relationships with our TeWinkle team to reinforce the home to school partnership. I am thrilled to continue this journey with you and grateful for the opportunity to strengthen the relationships with the students, staff, families, and community members of TeWinkle.

Warm Regards,

Dr. Ixchel Sanchez
