My name is Carmen Salazar and I am a 3rd grade teacher here at Hatchett Elementary. I have been teaching for 12 years. The first nine years I taught 4th grade and this will be my third year teaching 3rd grade. I love it!! I recieved my Bachelor's degree from the University of Texas at Austin in Economics/Business. After many years in the hospitality industry, I decided to pursue teaching degree. I am a graduate from the Alternative Certification Program from the Education Center Service Region 20. My second career in teaching has been a blessing because I am absolutely loving it.
