Mrs. Alison Salemo

Hello! I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade Reading and Social Studies at Polenta this year! 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. I am very excited about this addition to all that I have to bring to the classroom in order to support my students as they grow. I live in Johnston County with my husband, daughter, and our 4 rescue dogs, Cookie, Louie, Penny, and Sammie. In my free time I love to read. I am so excited for the learning, growing, goal setting and goal achieving that we have to look forward to in the 2020-2021 school year! We are going to have a great year!!
