Mrs. Alison Salemo
Hello! I teach 5th grade ELA and Social Studies at Polenta! This is my 4th year as a Puma, and I absolutely adore it! I received my BA in Literature from the Ramapo College of New Jersey. I then received my Masterś in Elementary Education from NC State. In New Jersey, I taught both 4th and 5th grade. I then moved to Raleigh, where I taught 5th grade for 3 years. I am trained in Responsive Classroom and place a large focus on the building of my classroom community. I am currently going through the process of receiving my AIG certification. Additionally, I completed my LETRS certification last year, allowing me a deep knowledge of the science of reading. I am very excited about these additions to all that I have to bring to the classroom in order to support my students as they learn and grow. I live in Johnston County with my husband, daughter, and our 2 rescue dogs, Penny and Sammie. In my free time I love to read and go on adventures with my family. I am so excited for the learning, growing, goal-setting and goal achieving that we have to look forward to in the 2022-2023 school year! We are going to have a great year!!
