San Domenico School News & Events

#FacesOfSD: Meet Amy Saavedra, Assistant Director of Admissions, 9-12

Amy Saavedra

Full Name: Amy Liggett Saavedra

Home Town: Danville, California

I chose to come work at SD because: The people who work at San Domenico work tirelessly to provide our students with an educational experience that challenges/supports them to be their best, most authentic selves.

My favorite place in the world is: The top of Pothole Dome, Tuolumne Meadows, CA

My favorite annual event at SD is: I'm looking forward to finding that out this year!

When I am older I would like to: Travel the world

I am joyful about: International travel, mountains, rivers, lakes, my kids, my friends, my dog, music, books, great food.

I dream about: Quality education for every child everywhere

Activities I participate in at SD include: So far, working.

After working hard in school all week, what is your ideal weekend? Great food, live music, urban hike, time with kids, time with friends, time to relax!

What are a few of your most significant academic accomplishments? It's been too long!

What are a few of your most significant personal accomplishments? I've raised two amazing children and hiked to the top of Mt. Whitney in one (very long) day.  

Anything else you would like people to know about you? When I'm deep in thought (which is a lot of the time) I make a mean face- I'm not glaring at you!  Also, I love to talk about good books and I am prone to binge watching a good series.
