A little about Mrs Sand
A little bit about AnnMarie Sand

Purple is my favorite flavor!!!

    I just wanted to take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in Phoenix's west valley. I attended grade school in the Pendergast District and graduated from Tolleson Union High School. I completed my bachelor's degree at ASU West. Go Sun Devils!!! I am dual certified to teach elementary education K-8 and special education K-12. I have taught special education in a wide variety of settings. I have always wanted to be a teacher and feel very privileged to be teaching in the Avondale Elementary District. 

    I am married with three children, a son and two daughters. My son in grown and busy making his career as a profession chef. Currently he is cooking at True Food Kitchen located in the Biltmore Fashion Park. My oldest daughter is 17 and is busy with her senior year in high school, friends and band. My youngest daughter is 11. She is a dancer and active in community theater so she keeps us very busy with classes, performances, and competitions. When I get some free time I love going to the zoo, doing arts and crafts, travel and hiking. I also love to read, watch movies, and go to concerts.

    That is me in a nutshell. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or just to chat. Communication is key and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that your child has every chance to be a successful student. I believe ALL students are capable of success!!!
