Salem Through My Eyes

To me, Salem means opportunity. Students here have the opportunity to experience so many things, both in and out of the classroom. There are internship and volunteer opportunities with STEAM, leadership opportunities in clubs and organizations, creative opportunities in the arts, fun opportunities with activities, and challenging opportunities with Academy and College academics. Since Salem is a small school, students also have the opportunity to be seen and heard. Their unique selves and voices matter, and they can be seen in class discussions, during assembly announcements, in dorm decorations, in clothing choices, and more. Students get the opportunity to learn more about different customs, cultures, and life experiences through our diverse community as well.

Fun Facts

I spent a year as a volunteer firefighter when I was in college. I enjoy playing the occasional video game. I love my precious fur baby, Luna.
