Excecutive PrincipalMy name is Xavier Sanchez. I have been a lifelong resident, student, and educator in the Fort Worth Independent School District. I have two wonderful boys that are students in FWISD and my wife serves as a 4th Grade Teacher here as well.Professionally, I grew up four blocks from Northside High School and went on to serve as a Dual Language Teacher in the Diamond Hill and North Side Pyramids. My first real experiences as an educator in the South Side, began when I was promoted to Assistant Principal, first at Worth Heights Elementary, and then at South Hills High School.I then spent the next 10 years as a Principal and as an Executive Director.The opportunity to return to the South Hills and Rosemont community was one that I could not refuse!I want you to know that I commit to bringing a positive attitude centered around respect, a focus on improving student outcomes, and a commitment to celebrating the great things that happen in our community.While I have had wonderful experiences all over this city, it feels great to finally call Rosemont, "Home."I look forward to meeting you all soon!
