Heather Woods Sanders ’91 carries her coaching persona into the classroom. “I coach both volleyball and calculus to win,” she said. “I want my kids to succeed on the AP Calculus exam so we take an ‘US vs. THEM’ approach to the AP test.”
Heather coaches volleyball and teaches calculus at Canyon High School in New Braunfels, Texas. Through the support of her family, Heather said she was led to believe that she could do whatever she wanted in life.
“My middle school and high school coaches and teachers were some of the most influential people in my life, and they are the reasons I ultimately chose the profession,” she said. “I felt called to coach so that maybe I could be to others what those coaches and teachers were to me.”
