Looking Toward the Next School Year

maslow-pyramidAs you  gear up for another school year, reflect on your passion and love to teaching. Most people call teaching their calling. Soon you will have a new group of 30 plus students at different emotional and academic levels. Remember to work to make a connection with your new students making your classroom a safe place to learn. Consider the following: the foundation level of Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs are physiological and safety.

About Lucy Salerno

I have been a resident of Fairfield for over 25 years and have 30 years’ teaching experience in California K – 6 schools. I have been a music teacher, band and choral director, elementary teacher in grades K – 6, a district level technology coordinator teaching, and an elementary school administrator. In 2011, my most recent school, Scandia Elementary, on Travis Air Force Base, was awarded the California Distinguished School Award for work and programs implemented under my watch. Because of my broad educational background, I know and understand what is needed in today's difficult educational environment. I have taught writing to children in numerous grades as a core subject as well as integrating writing into other curricula areas. I retired a few years ago from the Travis Unified School District, I love working with children, and am now dedicating my services and skills in support of your children. Through love and patience, I hope to understand a child's needs, meet them where they are, build self-confidence and develop a life-long love of learning.
