Mrs. Salvatore

I am a kindergarten and first grade teacher at River Trail School.  I live in Chicago and love spending my free time exploring the city.  I went to Purdue University for my undergrad and American College of Education for my masters degree. I love being with my family and spending time with my two nieces, two nephews, and one more on the way!  I can't wait to share this year with your special little one and your family! 


eLearning Day 1:


Dear families,

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. The following information outlines what you need to do for the day.  You need to complete 5 hours worth of work.


Be sure to complete reading and math first, and then move onto other areas.  I’ll check in on various applications to monitor your progress.  If you have any questions regarding an assignment today, I will be available through email.

When you have completed 5 hours worth of work, have your parent email me stating so.

            • Go in Seesaw and take a picture. Then describe your trap to me. Tell me all about how it works and how it will catch a leprechaun.
