Will Sanchez was born in Arizona at Williams Air Force Base. When Will was only a few months old, his military family moved to Oahu to be closer to family. At the age of three, his family took a big chance and moved to Anchorage, Alaska, where he spent the rest of his childhood. After graduating from Dimond High School in 1999, Will decided to change things up and move to Rancho Cordova, California. Within the next year, he chose to follow his family’s footsteps and join the military.
Will served in the Army from 2003-2008 as a Petroleum Supply Specialist.
He was stationed in Babenhausen, Germany for two years as well as Fort Hood, Texas. He deployed to Iraq in October 2006 and came home at the end of December 2007. The experience was valuable as Will realized his passion for learning. This led to Will wanting to pursue a career in education.
After the military, Will completed his studies at the University of Alaska-Anchorage, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.
Will spent his first two years as a classroom teacher in Alaska, teaching 1st and 3rd grade, before moving to the beautiful Big Island of Hawai’i in the summer of 2016. He loves music and sports. He incorporates these aspects into his teaching style, which he believes have a positive and lasting effect on our students. Will also loves to golf and play guitar in his spare time.
