La Mariposa is pleased to introduce Mrs. Katrina Salas. Mrs. Salas will be joining the 2nd Grade team this year. Before coming to LM, Mrs. Salas taught second grade at Dos Caminos. She has also taught all grades at Dos Caminos as their Title I teacher. Mrs. Salas loves to cook, go to the movies, swim, camp, and go hiking. Her perfect day might include watching Sweet Home Alabama, reading Water For Elephants, and eating a steak with baked potatoes at Outback…and if you are camping at Carpenteria or Mugu, you might just run into her. She loves camping at the beach and those are her favorite spots.
Mrs. Salas has an amazing family. She lives with her husband John and daughter Mikayla. They are all very busy, but take the time to have dinner together nightly. Mikayla is going into third grade, and she loves to swim and play the piano. Mr. Salas restores and repairs VW’s so their driveway is always full. They got married in Makena Beach, Maui in 2005. They have two dogs, Bentley and Milo, and two cats, Kona and Gizmo. (Great names, right?) She is very excited to be at LM, and looks forward to meeting all the students and to get to know the families as the year goes on.
Let’s make sure we all give Mrs. Salas a huge Tiger Welcome!
