Jennifer Sanchez - Principal

Ms. Sanchez has been an educator for over 20 years. 10 of these years were spent in the classroom teaching in grades PK-4 at S.S. Dillow Elementary, T.A. Sims Elementary, Washington Heights, Elementary, and Henry Wilson Elementary in New Hampshire. Although it was hard to leave the classroom, Ms. Sanchez became a Literacy Coach for Fort Worth ISD and spent three years coaching at Westpark Elementary.

In 2009, Ms. Sanchez was selected to participate in the first Aspiring Principals Program Cohort in Fort Worth ISD and interned at Daggett Elementary while completing her Master’s Degree in Educational Policy and Leadership Studies at The University of Texas in Arlington where she remained until joining the Rufino Mendoza family as Principal in 2014.

Ms. Sanchez lives in Fort Worth with her husband Steve, her two puppies Dani and Destiny, and her daughters - Alyssa, and Katie who attend Fort Worth ISD schools, and Elena who just graduated from FWISD and now attends Texas Tech University.

Rufino Mendoza Elementary holds a special place in Ms. Sanchez’s heart as her late mother-in-law and her two sisters attended Rufino Mendoza when it was called Denver Avenue.  She believes that every child deserves to have the same opportunities to learn, grow, and become their best.
