My name is Lara Sanchez, “Ms. Lara”, and I am excited to be your child’s teacher this school year. I am a certified special education teacher and I hold a graduate degree in early childhood special education. I have been teaching at Shining Stars since we opened 14 years ago and I am a proud mom to a wonderful son, Elijah, who is 8 years old. Photography is one of my hobbies and taking hikes in the bosque is one of my favorite ways to unwind!
I am also pleased to introduce to you our educational assistant, Lorena Bauman who is a warm and caring individual that I feel very fortunate to have working with us! She is bilingual and Spanish is her first language. This is her 8th year working for RRPS. She is also the proud mom of two teenagers, Isabel and Carlos. Lorena loves working in her yard and taking care of the many beautiful plants she has.
