Welcome Back Leopard Families!
My name is Christina Salazar and this is my sixth year at Legend Springs, but my first year as a full-time member of the 4th-grade team. For the past five years, I have been part of the student support services team supporting students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. I am so excited to be a part of this team and work with your kids!
I am beginning my 11th year as an educator. I have spent the past 10 years supporting students with various disabilities, first in the Alhambra School District and now in Deer Valley. This is truly my dream job and I am happy every day to come to school and work with your children.
I am a born and raised Arizona native and can't imagine living anywhere else. I love the sun and our calm winters. I attended elementary school in the Washington School District and completed high school in the Glendale Union High School District where I was in Student Council and other activities all four years. I received my bachelor's degree from Arizona State University, specifically with a dual certificate in elementary education and special education in 2009. I am a Sun Devil through and through, always Go Devils!
Personally, my husband and I have been married for over 9 years, and he is also an Arizona native. Our family also consists of four individually fantastic children. Samantha is 8, a third-grader here at Legend Springs, Michael will be 7 in November and is also a Leopard in first grade. Number 3 is JJ and he will be 4 in the spring. The youngest of our crowd is Anthony, who is nearly 2 and is a perfect final piece to our puzzle. Pets are another part of our family; Two rescued dogs that are pure "mutts", Vegas and Diego; along with two tortoises, Rosie and Raphael. Our family can be found spending our free time together with our extended family doing whatever sounds good at the moment. We love to travel, go to the beach, and enjoy movies.
Again, welcome back, I am anxious to see how much growth we all make this year!
Enjoy the year and I look forward to working with everyone, students and parents alike!
