Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Whitney Salerno! I have been teaching amazing kiddos since 2010. I graduated from Hastings College in Nebraska with a double major in Elementary and Special Education. I began my teaching career as an Early Childhood Special needs paraprofessional in Loveland, Colorado, where I grew up. I then decided to venture overseas and taught in Melbourne Australia as a Special Education Teacher for 6 years. I absolutely loved my time spent in Australia and learned so much about how important and key individualized learning is. I also met my wonderful husband Damien. We recently have gotten married in July 2017 and are now making Loveland, Colorado our home.
I absolutely love teaching and watching students succeed, learn from their mistakes, be proud, kind and grow into an awesome individual. I do many side jobs, like work for Triple Crown Sports running baseball and softball tournaments, sell Rodan and Fields Skincare and work at the Buckle in fashion. I absolutely love adventure and doing, doing, doing. Traveling, the beach, shopping, skiing, reading, hanging with my family and friends are some of my favorite things to do. I am so honored to be a part of the Van Buren family.
