Meet the team
Aydee Sanchez-Velez has worked for Caliber Beta Academy since the founding year. She is originally from Benicia and has lived in Richmond for almost 5 years. Aydee joined Caliber as a custodian, but quickly realized that she wanted a more student-facing role on the Meal Team. As the Meal Coordinator, she has worked tirelessly to serve 4 meals a day and over 1,000 meals across Caliber Schools since 2015!
Words about Aydee from the Beta staff:
"Aydee takes care of our Beta kids like her own! She makes sure all kiddos are well fed and works relentlessly to ensure everyone gets a full & nutritional meal. Her hard labor shows in the smiles of each child that she encounters on a daily basis!"
"Aydee has been with Caliber since the beginning. She is such an important part of the Caliber family and does so much for our students behind the scenes. "
"Aydee is incredibly passionate about our students and this community. I really value her opinion, both as an employee and as a parent."
All about Aydee!
What is your favorite thing about working for Caliber?
My most favorite thing about working with Caliber is interacting with kids. I worked for the AAA insurance company for many years, until I figured out that working with kids is SO much more fun! I have a daughter and a nephew that go to school here and I want what's best for them.
What was your favorite subject growing up?
I had two favorite subjects: math and science! If you had asked my mom, she would have said it was RECESS!
What is your favorite memory associated with music?
I went to a Taylor Swift concert with my best friend. We had so much fun singing and dancing together... It was a blast!
If you could go on a dream vacation, what would you do + where would you go?
I would want to visit Maui. I would love relaxing on the beach with my family.
What is your favorite thing about the Bay Area?
The cool weather! Although not so much lately....
Anything else you want to share?
Everyone should know that I am a kid at heart. I may look serious, but in reality I'm pretty silly!
