Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Karen Salazar and I am an English teacher. I've been in education for 2 years working as a paraprofessional in Fontana, CA and now as an English teacher I am so excited to be part of SCCA. I received my Bachelor's degree in English Education and my teaching credential from California Polytechnic University, Pomona. I grew up here in Porterville and attended Monache High School (Class of 2005! Woohoo!). Now as I return to my hometown I am eager to take my students on the wonderful journey that is language and literature. I love taking pictures, drinking coffee, chocolate, traveling, spending time with my loved ones, cats, nature, reading, Netflix, anime/manga, writing, visiting local bookstores, and anything Japanese.
