Mrs. Janie Salamat

Hello! My name is Janie Salamat, and I am the proud School Counselor for Lopez Riggins Elementary. I graduated from the University of Texas at Brownsville with a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master’s degree in School and Community Counseling from Lamar University. I began my teaching career in 2003 and have taught 3rd and 5th grades. I have been a School Counselor at the high school level as well as served as a Special Education Resource Teacher. I am ecstatic to be a Lopez-Riggins Wrangler! I look forward to working all students, staff and family members this school year!
