My name is Ms. Salazar! My biggest role as a College and Career Coach is supporting teachers and students directly. I plan and teach lessons to help students become self-aware, set future goals, and become acquainted with the CSU and UC system. I join I & E classes weekly for students who are in need of extra social emotional support. Motivating students early on about their future and developing social skills will provide students with a stronger foundation going into high school and after.
