    My name is Mrs. Sandra Vázquez and I am so excited to be your Safari Leader's Kindergarten teacher this year! This will be my 20th year of teaching. I've taught in both Puerto Rico and in FL. I have also been an ESOL Educational Specialist here in FL. I love teaching and the opportunities I have each year to help the children I work with! 
    My husband and I have a sweet dog named Chiquita, and an adventurous cat named Parker. We love our fur babies! My favorite things to do are read, watch TV and movies, be with family and friends, cook/bake, and sing. I love the beach, my church and, as your kids probably already know, monkeys, lions, and sea turtles! I also love Hello Kitty and the Little Mermaid. ☺
    This year I will be working hard for my Safari Leaders on the goals and skills they need to reach their mastery levels. To be able to make that happen, I rely on YOU to be part of our class learning team! Help your child at home to practice their skills  and read every day, check and return their SAFARI Folder daily, stay informed by reading our Kindergarten Class Dojo weekly parent messages, as well as any emails I might send, and communicate to me any questions or concerns regarding your child's academic or personal needs so that we can work together to support them. 
    I look forward to seeing how each one of our kids grows throughout the rest of the year! Thank you for being part of the team!
