• Principal's Message

    My name is Michele Sanchez, and it is an honor to introduce myself as the new Principal of Buhrer Dual Language Academy. I am excited to become a member of the Buhrer community and to begin this new journey to work with each and every one of you to support our children’s growth and academic success.

    I possess over seventeen years of educational experience, spanning grades PK-12, where I was a teacher for twelve years with extensive experience in bilingual education. My professional experience has involved working with diverse populations of students including general education, gifted, English Language Learners and special education students as a teacher and as an Assistant Principal for four years. My most recent leadership experience is in this community as a Resident Principal at Scranton PK-8 for one year. My experience has afforded me the background and knowledge to continue to lead Buhrer Dual Language Academy toward a collaborative, safe and engaging environment where high student achievement remains our number one priority.

    Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the traditions and the legacy of success established at Buhrer Dual Language Academy by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff and community partners.  We will continue to focus on ensuring our children are proficient in both Spanish and English by developing high academic and linguistic abilities in both languages. We will continue to set high expectations and develop our children’s academic, social and emotional skills to ensure they are prepared for the 21st Century.

    It is our job to work collaboratively with parents, community members, staff and students in order to instill in our children the belief that they can accomplish anything they set their mind to.

    Michele Sánchez
