My name is Maria T. Compton. I was born and raised in San Antonio. I graduated from John F. Kennedy
High School and attended Our Lady of the Lake University where I majored in Communication Disorders
and Child Psychology. I went on to get my teaching certificate from the UTSA. I have been teaching
since 1998. I started out in general education where I taught grades from Kinder to 3 rd . Eventually, I
made the switch into Special Education and I got my Master’s degree from Grand Canyon University.
I have been happily married for a while and we share 3 resilient children. I am typically a quiet, but
carefree person. I love to read mystery and suspense novels and watching those types of movies as well.
During my free time, I enjoy working on puzzles and playing with my dogs.
I am excited and grateful to begin working with the Lackland ISD community and look forward to many
I am happy to be back at Lackland Elementary! I am a military spouse and have been blessed with the opportunity to teach in many different places! For the second time I am back in Texas at Lackland Elementary teaching 5th grade. I started teaching in 2007 and have taught 4th, 5th, and Special Education (3rd to 8th).
I have a Master’s in Linguistically Diverse Education. I grew up in a small town outside of Dallas, TX and am excited to be back in my home state. I have two kids and two dogs, who keep me busy when not in school!
I look forward to working with all of you this year! I have high expectations for not only my students but for myself. I am excited for the year of growth we are going to have!
My name is Blanca Sanchez; I am a native Texan! I have lived in Texas all of my life with the exception of our 6 year duty station in Georgia. I have worked with children since I was in high school; I worked at our local Boys and Girls Club after school tutoring younger students. I always knew I wanted to work with children and while a great deal of that time was in middle and high school, I have now thoroughly enjoyed working with the students at Lackland Elementary. I love what I do and cannot imagine doing anything else! I am married to a retired Air Force Veteran and have one amazing child. I have been working in Special Education in some capacity since 2005. I enjoy spending time with my family and three dogs during my spare time.
