Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, I'm Mrs. Salas (I used to be Ms. Sullivan). I've been lucky enough to work for School District 47 since 1998. I hold a bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois in Human Resources and Family Studies and a Masters degree in the Arts of Teaching from National-Louis University. I like to learn right along with my students so I continue to take classes throughout my career to constantly get better at what I do. I started working at West Elementary as a paraprofessional for 5 years in Kindergarten, First Grade and 1/2 Multiage. When the opportunity arose, I became a first/second grade Multiage teacher. In 2006, I took a position as a first grade teacher. I raised three children in Crystal Lake where they all attended District 47 schools and are presently beautiful, successful, joyful adults. I am grateful as a teacher to have this parent perspective. Now that I am remarried, I have a wonderful husband to laugh with everyday and 3 more beautiful, successful, joyful adults, a son-in-law, one delightful granddaughter and a brand new grandson!
