Mary Sanchez




Hello 2021-2022 Bearcats! I am Ms. Sanchez and one of the SHS Health Science Career Academy instructors. I was born and raised in Scottsbluff and am a proud graduate of SHS.  I attended WNCC and received my Licensed Practical Nurse degree, then attended Excelsior College to receive my Associates Registered Nurse degree, graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree, and am currently working toward my Masters of Nursing Education.  I have been in nursing for 23 years and worked at Regional West Medical Center in various roles.  I have a State of Nebraska Career Education Teaching Permit and this will be my second year of instructing in the SHS Health Science Career Academy.  I am excited to share my knowledge and experience with SHS students and sparking an interest in healthcare!

This year I will teach Project Lead the Way Principles of Biomedical Sciences, Introduction to Health Sciences, and WNCC dual credit class of Medical Terminology.  I am looking forward to teaching and coaching this year and meeting all the students that will be in them!
