Ms. Tory Sanders

Hello 3rd Graders and Parents! I am so excited to be your 3rd Grade teacher. I have been teaching since 2001 and at Vandora since 2005.  I am a UNC Greensboro Elementary Education Teaching Fellow alum (Spartan Spirit). I also took graduate classes at UNC Charlotte.  I have taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade.  I also served as an Instructional Facilitator and Intervention Facilitator. 

I believe that all students can be successful with hard work, determination and grit.  Education is a village where teachers, parents, and students must work together to bring out the potential in each student.  I use the analogy of a 3-legged stool-- it cannot stand tall and steady without all 3 legs working together-- teacher, parent & student.  I look forward to working with each of you to make this the best year ever.  Communication is an integral part of educational success.  Please reach out to me through Talking Points  if you have any questions or concerns.
