All About Mrs. Salgado

Hello! My name is Tracy Salgado.

I am a teacher, a wife, a sister, a friend and most importantly a mother of two amazing kids of my own. I have a son that is 13 yrs. old and a daughter who is 12. We love to go boating together and spend lots of time at the beach on the weekends. Collecting shells is a little hobby of mine. I live in San Clemente and love it there!

I 'm so excited to begin my 20th year of teaching. I received my teaching credential through the University of Redlands in 1996. I have taught in many different schools, but for the last 5 years Laurel has been my home. I love Laurel Elementary. The community and students here make teaching so rewarding. I especially enjoy teaching first grade because teaching my students to read is my passion. I truly believe students learn when they are inspired. I hope to be your child's inspiration as we build a classroom community built on love, respect, expectations and laughter!


All students learn when they are accepted for who and where they are in their educational journey.

I believe learning takes place in a positive, safe environment with laughter.

Students learn when they are inspired.

Effective learning requires a collaboration between teacher, students, and parents grounded in mutual respect and trust.
